The surveillance tools were created by NSO Group, an Israeli firm that sells hacking tools to governments so they may keep tabs on criminals and terrorists.

While NSO Group is an Israeli company, its majority owner is the United States based private equity firm Francisco Partners. Recent reports suggest that Francisco Partners is considering selling NSO Group, with a reported valuation of $1 billion. Francisco Partners also owns a number of other companies that develop and sell mass surveillance technology....
