NSO is an Israeli cyber company that develops and offers authorities around the world offensive cyber tools for information and security purposes. Facebook filed a lawsuit against NSO in the United States, alleging that Facebook's WhatsApp application was attacked by NSO-developed software. After filing its lawsuit, Facebook also closed the Facebook and Instagram accounts of a few NSO employees.
Ultimately, since only one employee submitted an affidavit attesting to the damage she suffered as a result of closing her account, the court ordered that only her account be re-opened.
