WhatsApp has sued NSO accusing it of helping government spies break into the phones of hundreds of users across four continents in a hacking spree whose targets included top government officials.
Sources familiar with WhatsApp’s internal investigation said a “significant” portion of the known victims are high-profile government and military officials spread across at least 20 countries.
"After the phone rang, the attacker secretly transmitted malicious code in an effort to infect the victim's phone with spyware."
NSO: No violations and we already adopted UN guidelines
Amnesty has accused NSO of potentially illegal involvement in aiding oppressive governments in tracking or harassing human rights activists and journalists, NSO has rejected all of the charges.
