Fears of a hacking campaign targeting centrist French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron came to fruition in a last minute information dump Friday evening. The leaked memos and emails appeared online just hours before a legally-required midnight media blackout on election coverage. Voters will head to the polls on Sunday amidst confusion over what information the hacked documents actually contain.
French law requires the media to cease publishing about the election 44 hours before the polls close on Sunday. Likewise, campaigns must stop making statements at the same time. That left the Macron campaign in a tough situation, and it released a statement four minutes before the cutoff time.
The campaign’s digital director signaled just a few days ago that no hack had been successful , as web analytics firm Trend Micro identified the source of hacking attempts as the same Russian outfit that tapped into the emails of the Democratic National Committee in the U.S.
