RIYADH (Dispatches) – Quadream, a Zionist cyber company that provides hacking software, has been selling iPhone spyware to Saudi Arabia since 2019, the occupying regime’s media have revealed.
Saudi Arabia uses the technology to hack smartphones of dissidents and opponents of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) and spy on their communications, Israeli newspaper Haaretz said.
The report said Quadream was founded in 2016 by three Zionists – two cyber experts and a former senior official in the regime’s military espionage.
Citing sources and documents, Haaretz said that the company uses a front in Cyprus to sell its Reign spyware, which allows the extraction of all data from iPhones, enables the activation of the device’s camera and microphone and tracks the user’s location without their knowledge. The spyware can be deposited on the user’s phone without their knowledge and they do not need to click on any link.
Moreover, it cannot be remotely deactivated by the developer, unlike similar tools offered by competitors.
Back in early December 2018, the Washington Post reported that Tel Aviv was directly involved in the sale of sophisticated spyware to Saudi Arabia to help the kingdom purge and assassinate dissidents.
The Post said the regime’s war minister had authorized the NSO Group to sell Pegasus, a patch of highly complicated software used for hacking and espionage, to the Saudi kingdom.
The report said the sale was carried out through a subsidiary of the NSO in Luxembourg. The firm, officially known as Q Cyber Technologies, enabled Riyadh to target individuals and entities in six Middle Eastern countries.
Saudi Arabia has expanded its secret ties with the Zionist regime under MbS.
A member of Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet and Likud party on November 23 last year confirmed reports that Netanyahu had flown to Saudi Arabia for a clandestine meeting with MbS and then U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
The Zionist regime’s Kan public radio and Army Radio said Mossad chief Yossi Cohen also attended the meeting.
The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas denounced the meeting as an “insult” to the Palestinian cause.
