Amnesty International has uncovered a targeted digital attack campaign against a Human Rights Defender (HRD) in Togo. The Amnesty International Security Lab investigation found that the spyware used in these attacks ties to an attacker group known as the Donot Team, previously connected to attacks in India and Pakistan among others. Amnesty International has identified links between the infrastructure used by Donot Team and an Indian cybersecurity company, Innefu Labs, which advertises digital security, data analytics, and predictive policing services to law enforcement and armed forces. This research highlights the threat “hacker-for-hire” attacks pose to HRDs and civil society globally.
