Russia spied on foreign powers at last month’s G20 summit by giving
delegations USB pen drives capable of downloading sensitive information
from laptops, it was claimed today.
The devices were given to foreign delegates, including heads of state, at
the summit near St Petersburg, according to reports in two Italian
newspapers, La Stampa and Corriere della Sera.
Downing Street said David Cameron was not given one of the USB sticks said
to have contained a Trojan horse programme, but did not rule out the
possibility that officials in the British delegation had received them.
The Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "My understanding is that
the Prime Minister didn't receive a USB drive because I think they were a
gift for delegates, not for leaders."
Asked if Downing Street staff were given the USBs, he said: "I believe
they were part of the gifts for delegates."
