““Some 9,000 email accounts, including those belonging to Theresa May and other cabinet ministers, were subjected to a sustained attack on June 23. Ninety accounts were compromised.”
“Whitehall officials admitted it was inevitable that the hackers had obtained sensitive material,” the Times reported.

The investigation is still ongoing, for this reason, both The House of Commons and the National Cyber Security Centre did not comment the attack. The attack was discovered during a secret intelligence assessment, sources described the Iranian threat actors as “highly capable actors in the cyber world”.
“It was the not most sophisticated attack, but nor did it need to be.” a second source added. “It is possible they were simply testing their
capability.””
