Apple is suing NSO Group. Israeli company hacks iPhone at the request of intelligence agencies

Apple today announced, which is suing the NSO Group, the organization that developed tools to spy on iPhone users and sold them to intelligence agencies. The complaint contains information about how NSO Pegasus infected the devices of victims with its spyware using compromising Apple ID accounts.

Apple plans to secure a complete ban on the use of Apple software, services and devices by the NSO Group to prevent future cyberattacks.

The press release also noted that after the closure of various backdoors in iOS 15, the NSO Group continues to develop new exploits. Apple has not identified new cases of infection.

Apple devices are the safest consumer devices on the market, but private companies sponsored by intelligence agencies are becoming more dangerous. Although the threat of such cyberattacks affects only a small number of users, we take such situations very seriously and are constantly working to strengthen the security and protection of privacy in iOS.

Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software development.

In addition to litigation, Apple will provide $ 10 million for organizations looking for vulnerabilities and developing iOS protection tools.
