The NSO Group said its tools were designed to target terrorists and criminals. But Pegasus is also believed to have been used against activists, politicians and journalists.
NSO Group says it only delivers Pegasus to the armed forces, law enforcement agencies and intelligence services in democratic countries.
However, earlier this month, US officials blacklisted the company, saying the software “allowed foreign governments to conduct transnational crackdowns, which is the practice of authoritarian governments to target dissidents, journalists and activists.”
This action by Apple comes after criticism from other technology companies, including Microsoft, Meta Platforms (formerly Facebook), Alphabet, the owner of Google, and Cisco Systems.
“To prevent further abuse and harm to its users, Apple is also seeking a permanent court order banning NSO Group from using any Apple software, services or devices,” the iPhone maker said.
