Google accuses Spanish spyware company of ties to zero-day exploitation framework
A Spanish commercial spyware company is likely tied to an exploitation framework known to take advantage of vulnerabilities in Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Defender, according to new research.
The company has been at the center of controversy over the last two years after it was implicated in the hacks of devices owned by several world leaders. NSO Group was blacklisted by the U.S. government last year after it was revealed that its Pegasus tool was used to hack into the phones of several U.S. State Department officials in Uganda. The report was published on the same day that 15 journalists and other members of El Faro, one of the leading sources of independent news in Central America, filed a lawsuit against spyware firm NSO Group.
