Apple sues Israeli spyware firm NSO Group
Apple is suing Israeli spyware firm NSO Group and its parent company for allegedly targeting iPhone users with a hacking tool. In a blog post, Apple said it wanted to hold NSO Group and its parent company OSY Technologies "Accountable for the surveillance and targeting of Apple users". "To prevent further abuse and harm to its users, Apple is also seeking a permanent injunction to ban NSO Group from using any Apple software, services, or devices," it said. In its complaint, filed in US District Court for the Northern District of California, Apple said NSO's tools were used in "Concerted efforts in 2021 to target and attack Apple customers" and that "US citizens have been surveilled by NSO's spyware on mobile devices that can and do cross international borders." NSO Group said in response: "Thousands of lives were saved around the world thanks to NSO Group's technologies used by its customers".
