Pegasus spyware is suspected to have been used to infect the UK government’s 10 Downing Street network, researchers at Canadian internet security watchdog Citizen Lab have concluded.
A device connected to that network was infected using the spyware on 7 July 2020, according to a report on the research by the New Yorker.
The report added that the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) tested several phones at Downing Street including that of the prime minister – but was unable to locate the infected device.
It said the nature of any data taken was never determined.
John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher at the Citizen Lab, told the New Yorker: “When we found the Number 10 case, my jaw dropped.”
