                Les téléphones portables du président français Emmanuel Macron et de 15 membres du gouvernement français pourraient avoir été parmi les cibles potentielles en 2019 de la surveillance par des logiciels espions réalisée par le groupe israélien NSO, selon un article de presse mardi.

                                    <p>Le rapport de <em>Le Monde</em> fait suite à l'annonce par le bureau du procureur de Paris qu'il enquête sur l'utilisation généralisée présumée du logiciel espion Pegasus de NSO pour cibler des journalistes, des militants des droits humains et des politiciens dans plusieurs pays. 

The world is part of the global media consortium Forbidden Stories which identified targets from a leaked list of more than 50,000 cell phone numbers. The research was carried out in cooperation with human rights group Amnesty International and shared with 16 news agencies which began publishing their findings on Sunday.

On the same day, Amnesty published a forensic analysis of the alleged targeting which showed that Amazon Web Services hosted the NSO infrastructure. In response, Amazon said it closed NSO accounts that were “confirmed to support the reported hacking activity.” Amazon said it violated its terms of service.

Another American company identified by Amnesty as hosting NSO servers was DigitalOcean. Contacted by the Associated Press, DigitalOcean has neither confirmed nor denied having identified or shut down such servers.

Moroccan security service

“All the infrastructure described in Amnesty’s report is no longer on DigitalOcean,” he said Tuesday without giving details in an emailed statement.

The world said the phone numbers of Macron and members of the government at the time were among thousands allegedly selected by ONS clients for potential surveillance. In this case, the client was an unidentified Moroccan security service, according to The world.
