Mobily Denies Asking Moxie for Help

“Mobily or its employees never communicated with the author of this blog,” the company said. “Mobily communicates with information security companies only based on legal and lawful requirements. We never communicate with hackers. Moreover, it is not our job to spy on customers.”

American software engineer known as Moxie Marlinspike wrote Monday on his blog that he was approached by a manager at the company to help them organize a program to intercept messages sent via apps like WhatApp, Twitter and Viber.
