Human rights groups have reportedly asked the Defense Ministry to stop permitting an Israeli company to sell its phone hacking tool to Uganda, claiming it is used for rights abuses. Cellebrite has sold its UFED phone-hacking software to the Ugandan police and security services, Haaretz reported Wednesday. UFED makes it possible to break into password-protected phones and retrieve all the information they contain. Several human rights groups signed on to the letter sent to the Defense Ministry penned by human rights attorney Eitay Mack, one of the country’s leading voices against arms sales to human rights violators.
