Israel’s NSO staff sue Facebook for blocking private accounts

"Workers at Israeli surveillance firm NSO sue Facebook for blocking private accounts", 26 November 2019

A group of employees from Israeli surveillance firm NSO Group filed a lawsuit against Facebook Inc on Tuesday, saying the social media giant had unfairly blocked their private accounts when it sued NSO last month...

Facebook said in a statement that it had disabled “relevant accounts” after attributing a “sophisticated cyber attack” to NSO Group and its employees. Those actions “continue to be necessary for security reasons, including preventing additional attacks,” the company said.
