Comment: Pegasus Suspected To Have Infected 10 Downing Street

It has been reported that Pegasus spyware is suspected to have been used to infect the 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 would be naive of any government to think that they are not at the centre of espionage attempts or do not use espionage as a method for attaining political advantage. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer; in politics it is particularly critical to figure out who’s a friend and who’s an enemy.
