No my friend. It cannot be avoided. The OS backdoor(s) -every popular OS- are built-in by design, and by the (patriot) laws. The smart NSO guys did not abused any bugs, but commercialized built-in features in commercial software.

NSO just selling to law enforcement around the world what the 5 eyes and few more of their noses and tails have and use against their own journalists and activists anyway.

Do not attack NSO for making money from using built-in features in Apple, Google and Microsoft products. Instead, kindly ask the Big-Tech to protect their customers and users, for a change.

Because if it's wrong to spy on social and liberal activists and journalists, as i think it is, its wrong anywhere. And if it's right - it's right everywhere.

There is no single difference between Julian Assange in London and Edward Snowden in Moscow, or Alexei Navalnyin in Russia and Roman Protasevichin in Belarus. Or it's OK to expose government's wrong doing, or it's important to hunt wrongdoing-exposers in the name of stability, law, security, whatever.
