Cybersecurity firm hacking princes, emirs and journalists to impress clients

An Israel-based cybersecurity company is being sued by individuals claiming that they were hacked and placed under surveillance in order for the company to attract potential clients. The company (NSO Group) typically sells the surveillance technologies to governments under the explicit condition that they use them only against criminals and terrorists, and are thus not responsible for uses outside of these purposes. Evidence shared in the lawsuit, however, suggests that they have used the surveillance technologies against high-profile individuals to demonstrate its utility.
