Notorious and sanctioned Israeli spyware firm NSO Group said its Chief Executive Shalev Hulio is stepping down immediately, with Chief Operating Officer Yaron Shohat appointed to oversee a company reorganization before a successor is named.
The company confirmed that around 100 employees will be let go as part of the firm's reorganization and that Shohat will lead the company until the board appoints a new CEO. The company has battled one controversy after another, including sanctions by the U.S., after allegations that governments and other agencies misused its tools to hack mobile phones.
