Apple announced a lawsuit against Israeli firm NSO Group on Tuesday for alleged "surveillance and targeting" of the company's users. The company said it is seeking damages and an injunction to block NSO Group from using its products in the future. Apple said the surveillance was limited to a small group of users and that its servers were not hacked.
Apple has issued an emergency software update after a flaw was found that allowed spyware attributed to Israel's NSO Group to infect an iPhone, Apple Watch, or Mac computer without the user having to click on anything. The malware was found on the phone of an unidentified Saudi activist by Canadian internet security watchdog Citizen Lab.
