There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group’s Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.

Brazil won’t do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.

There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos’ smartphone.

If you know of any security researcher who wants to reverse engineer the exploits they are using, I am more than willing to help them.

If you want a story about how they operate, I am willing to work with you to expose them.


Contact the University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab, they specialize in exactly this.


Done, no reply, guess they are too busy already. Got a better reply from OCCRP (that named Bolsonaro 2020 Corrupt Person of the Year), but it is too much for them.


Try again? There’s a whole page with people to contact.


I wrote to a developer at Mozilla (as Firefox is targeted for exploits too), they forward it to the security team, and they offered to refer me to Citizen Lab. Dunno what will come of that, guess I will wait. Thanks for the pointers, I will try messaging them directly again if that does not work out.


Best of luck!
