According to the giant of social networks, NSO would have used the QuadraNet hosting service in Los Angeles “more than 700 times” to infect users with malware, adding that an Amazon server was also involved. This would directly contradict NSO’s claims that it could not carry out operations in the United States and overcome the problems related to jurisdiction.
The Facebook legal team also tried to refute the exceptions raised by NSO regarding his immunity because of the government clientele he can claim.
An NSO spokesman, in commenting on the new accusations, limited himself to denying without adding particularly important topics.
