iMazing detects Pegasus malware easily and for free

Pegasus, the NSO group’s malware, used to spy on rogue states journalists and politicians, can be installed without user intervention (read: Pegasus Spy Malware is still very effective and used) If the target of the software is not the general public, they can verify that their smartphone has not been compromised using a tool developed by Amnesty International, a mobile verification tool (MVT) security researcher.

MVT is a tool that can detect the presence of Pegasus on a smartphone

MVT is currently eligible, but its use is complicated for the average user and should get your hands dirty. It may not be convenient for everyone to test this solution. Here comes iMazing: version 2.14 of the backup software Integrated MVT detection tool.

No need to buy an iMazing license (from 29.99 Rs) To take advantage of this new functionality, which is completely free in the trial version (which is not limited in time). Then Download Tamil And install iMazing, click Continue testing, Connect iPhone to Mac or run a backup scan, then select the option Detect spyware.

After the presentation panel translated into French, the software proposes to download Amnesty reference files (we can also load them locally if we have them on hand), and then mark the path to save the result analysis in CVS or Excel format. It is also necessary to accept the same application license for MVT (in this case open source license Mozilla v2.0).

Analysis requires a little computational time, for which you must first create a backup of the smartphone’s contents. After the operation, iMazing shows a window indicating the presence or absence of pegasus. The results can be analyzed in more depth in the link report. Keep in mind that the software will only detect malware and will not remove it. The editor provides a complete user guide to discuss this Address.

If occasionally the result is positive, iMazing offers to send them the analysis to check if it is false positive.

IMazing’s detection tool goes further in the analysis than MVT, the software can actually search for encrypted backups without encrypting the entire package; Copies of encrypted files will be deleted as soon as they are scanned. In contrast, iMazing only supports iOS, not Android, and files from jailbroken devices are not compatible with other limitations.
