Israel: Authorities arrested mobile monitoring company executives

ΙσραήλAccording to the Israeli media, the police proceeded to Arrests of one of the executives company, which sells mobile tracking tools Appliances.

This is the company Ability Inc. In particular, the authorities arrested executives of two subsidiaries of Ability Inc., of Computer & Software and Ability Security Systems. These companies supply the services law enforcement around the world with hacking tools for mobile phones.

Ability tools are considered to be the best of their kind. They exploit vulnerabilities on telecommunications protocols and effectively monitor victims' cell phones.

The arrests were made after many months research of the Israeli government in the affairs of the company.

In March, the Ministry of Defense suspended the company's export license. This license allowed Ability to sell its tools to others countries over Israel.

Israeli media report that police have decided to arrest the executives of the subsidiaries as continued to sell them products in areas outside Israel, without an export license, thus violating the laws of the Israeli government.

In addition, there were charges for scams and money laundering. The Israeli Foreign Ministry's financial department conducted a separate investigation into the case.

Investigations in both cases are ongoing. Police did not want to release the names of the arrested officials. They also did not provide further details on how the arrests were made.

In June, the company faced another legal problem. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has filed a lawsuit against Ability and its two top executives after the company was accused of cheating shareholders of a company they had merged with.

Ability has been at the center of discussions several times. A Forbes 2017 report showed that the company has faced various financial issues due to some wrong moves and investments.
