Armenia has acquired a Pegasus spy program, which carries out illegal wiretapping. At least two people have already been warned by Apple that they are being listened to.

Security expert Ruben Muradyan said on his Facebook page that a spy program operates on two people's cell phones in Armenia.

"Apple started sending warning emails to Pegasus victims. There are at least 2 persons in Armenia, who received it tonight," he noted.

Earlier, we reported that Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan had purchased a $ 7 million Pegasus system. In other countries, this system is used in foreign intelligence to eavesdrop on those who threaten the security of the country.

Pegasus is spyware developed by the Israeli company NSO Group.

The Pegasus program has been used for cyber-attacks on opposition activists and journalists around the world. A few months ago, we also published the stories of several news organizations about the Pegasus spy program.
