Facebook-owned WhatsApp has filed a lawsuit against Israel’s NSO Group, alleging the firm was behind cyber-attacks that infected devices with malicious software.

WhatsApp accuses the company of sending malware to roughly 1,400 mobile phones for the purposes of surveillance.

Users affected included journalists, human rights activists, political dissidents, and diplomats.

NSO Group, which makes software for surveillance, disputed the allegations.
