PHOENIX, Nov 24 (Xinhua) -- Apple Inc. said Tuesday it has filed a lawsuit against Israeli Internet company NSO Group and its parent company, OSY Technologies, accusing the company of using its spy software Pegasus to spy on and target Apple users in the United States.
Apple said it would also seek to ban the NSO from using any Apple software, service or device to prevent further abuse and claim more than $75,000. In its complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Apple said NSO's tools were used in a coordinated effort to target and attack Apple customers in 2021, and that NSO created more than 100 fake Apple ID user credentials to carry out attacks. Apple said its servers had not been compromised, but that the NSO had abused and manipulated the servers to attack Apple users.
NSO has yet to comment, but it has previously said it only sells products to law enforcement and intelligence agencies and will take steps to limit abuse. (Author/Yu Yu)
