Mehbooba Mufti's daughter claimed her phone has been hacked by Pegasus

New Delhi: Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Wednesday claimed that her phone has been hacked by Pegasus while sharing a screenshot of an alert she received on her Apple iPhone. She lashed out at the Central government and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), alleging that they "snoop on women".
She shared the screenshots on X with the caption, "Got an Apple alert that my phone’s been hacked by Pegasus which GOI has admittedly procured & weaponised to harass critics & political opponents. BJP shamelessly snoops on women only because we refuse to toe their line. How low will you stoop?"

What The Alert Said

The notification read, "Apple detected a targeted mercenary spyware attack against your iPhone. Apple detected that you are being targetted by a mercenary spyware attack that is trying to remotely compromise the iPhone associated with your Apple id..."
"This attack is likely targetting you specifically because of who you are or what you do. Although it's never possible to achieve absolute certainty when detecting such attacks, Apple has high confidence in this warning - please take it seriously," it added.

Notification Sent to User In 98 Countries

The alert also said that the notification is being sent to targeted users in 98 countries, and to date users in over 150 countries have been notifided.
"Mercenary spyware attacks, such as those using Pegasus from the NSO Group, are exceptionally rare and vastly more sophisticated than regular cybercriminal activity or consumer malware. These attacks cost millions of dollars and are individually deployed against a very small number of people, but the targeting is ongoing and global. Since 2021, we have sent Apple threat notifications like this one multiple times a year as we detect mercenary spyware attacks. Today's notification is being sent to targeted users in 98 countries, and to date we have notified users in over 150 countries in total."
