Apple has filed a lawsuit accusing Israeli firm NSO Group of using the Pegasus spyware to attack iPhone users. In July, Amnesty International said Pegasus was used to target iPhones belonging to politicians, human rights activists, and journalists via "zero-click attacks."
- Apple wants to permanently ban NSO Group from using its software, services, or devices.
- Apple says it has patched the flaws that allowed "zero-click" attacks.
- The tech giant will donate $10M and all damages won from its lawsuit to organizations focused on cyber security.
- NSO Group has repeatedly been accused of selling its software to governments with weak human rights records.
- However, the company says its software has "saved lives."
