Billionaire Facebook Investor Peter Thiel Secretly Funded A ‘Cyber Warfare’ Startup That Hacked WhatsApp | Forbes

Must Read

Boldend, a firm based in San Diego, has kept a modest profile since its inception in 2017. Though it has gotten little attention, it was included in the New York Times last weekend, right at the conclusion of an article about the troubled Israeli spyware firm NSO Group. According to a report provided to defense major Raytheon, Boldend established a capacity to hack WhatsApp, albeit it was shut off in a security upgrade in January 2021. It was the first time its “cyber warfare” program had been made public outside of a Raytheon alliance. A slide in that same briefing to Raytheon indicated that Boldend was funded by Founders Fund, Peter Thiel’s investment vehicle.
