Apple sues the 'amoral mercenaries' from NSO who made the iPhone spyware Pegasus

Apple sues the 'amoral 21st century mercenaries' NSO who made the iPhone spyware Pegasus
Remember NSO, the Israeli security company that created the Pegasus spyware that exploits iMessage and other vulnerabilities to sell iPhone access to the highest bidder, including authoritarian governments

Well, Apple has now filed a lawsuit against it, and all the better for its former CEO that he left NSO when he felt where the wind is blowing with the US government sanctions against it and all.

You can read the whole Apple vs NSO lawsuit filing here, as Apple's lawyers are using some pretty strong wording to describe the NSO's Pegasus spyware creation and the activities that it allowed:


As far as the money that Apple is seeking to obtain as a redress from NSO sound, the amount sounds fairly humble in the lawsuit. "Apple seeks an accounting and disgorgement of Defendants’ ill-gotten data and profits in an amount to be proven at trial, and in excess of $75,000," the filing says, but besides compensatory, the lawsuit also seeks punitive damages, and the sum total could very well spell the end of NSO's existence.
