Gamma Says It Didn’t Sell to Bahrain, Spyware Might Be Stolen

Gamma International GmbH’s managing director said his company didn’t sell its FinFisher spyware to Bahrain, responding to research that showed activists from the Persian Gulf kingdom were targeted by what looked like the software, which can secretly monitor computers.

The Munich-based executive, Martin J. Muench, said he’s investigating whether the malicious software sent to activists was a demonstration copy of the product stolen from Gamma and used without permission.
