Researchers have uncovered a nefarious but comically incompetent spyware campaign that's targeting Ethiopian dissidents in the US, UK, and other countries. Mohammed forwarded the email to Citizen Lab, which has monitored the campaign for more than a year. This is not the first time the Ethiopian government has been accused of using spyware to surveil critics. In 2015, Citizen Lab detailed the country's use of Hacking Team spyware to target US-based journalists. Two years earlier, Citizen Lab reported Ethiopia was among the countries using Gamma Group's FinSpy spyware.
