Israeli firm’s spyware used against Ethiopian dissidents: Canadian group


FILE PHOTO: Logo of Israeli defence electronics firm Elbit Systems is seen at their offices in Haifa, Israel February 26, 2017. Citizen Lab, which helps human rights activists defend themselves against spy software, earlier this year reported on attacks in Mexico using spyware produced by Israel’s NSO Group.] A Cyberbit representative declined to comment on the claims from Citizen Lab. Citizen Lab was unable to determine what data, if any, was obtained from individuals targeted in the operation, Marczak said. “Companies have an independent responsibility to respect human rights — to avoid causing or contributing to adverse human rights impacts, and to address such impacts when they occur,” Deibert said.
