France’s finance minister Bruno Le Maire has revealed that authorities are probing whether Pegasus malware had infected government devices, after reports claimed that world leaders were being targeted using the Israeli spyware.

In an interview on Friday, Le Maire acknowledged that French investigators were looking into the possible security breach, which may have even extended to the minister’s own phone.

“We are in an investigation phase, and that includes my own device,” he told France Inter radio on Friday. He declined to provide more details about the ongoing investigation. (RT)
