An israeli company known as NSO has been accused of hacking hundreds of devices of key figures ie human rights activists, journalists etc by whatsapp(amnesty has backed this up and have stated their own staff have been targetted). NGO has currently not put in any legal response to the lawsuit and is kinda acting like it's beyond the law.

NSO promised to "vigorously fight" the allegations, but the firm was a no-show in the Northern District of California, where the case was filed.

Legal documents filed by WhatsApp detail repeated efforts to serve the company with legal documents, including emails to senior executives, FedEx-delivered copies to NSO board members, and even a hand-delivered copy of the suit left with NSO cofounder Omri Lavie's wife at their New Jersey home.

In a statement, WhatsApp noted that NSO had failed to show up before a judge and said it would "continue to pursue swift accountability from the courts in the U.S."

Does NSO have any offices or business in the USA? if not then the lawsuit is a waste of time as it looks like NSO are just going to ignore it and that will mean the USA will have to file for extradition on grounds of criminal activity.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Rarely, if ever does a foreign country's appellate to the highest court, ever come to fruition. NSO should've appealed to the homeland and cybersecurity to get the ball rolling. The courts come quite later in the process. My two cents are that Whatsapp would've been in a fix, if the NSO had actually showed up/ pushed for harsher measures.
