The most spied-on man on Earth.

/The most spied-on man on Earth.

Ahmed Mansoor is a human rights activist in the United Arab Emirates. He’s also one of the most spied-on and malware-targeted people on the planet. The next time you get a security update for your iPhone, you should spare a moment to give thanks to Mansoor, who was almost certainly targeted with the exploit first.

Oh, and who’s writing all these sophisticated zero-day exploits being thrown at Mr. Mansoor, professional human rights activist? Mostly they’re super-secret-squirrel US-backed Israeli cyberweapons manufacturers. But, yanno. Democracy! Freedom! Or something.
