Leading French presidential candidate Moma’s Boy Emmanuel Macron’s campaign said on Friday it had been the target of a “massive” computer hack that dumped its campaign e-mails online 1-1/2 days before voters choose between the “centrist” ( centrist my ass- Open Borders-Globalist-Pro EU-Anti France) and his “far-right” (Oy Vey Da Notsees which is really National Borders-Non Globalist-Non EU-Pro France Nationalist) rival, Marine Le Pen.
Macron, who is seen as the front runner in an election billed as the most important in France in decades, extended his lead over Le Pen in polls on Friday.
As much as nine gigabytes of data were posted on a profile called EMLEAKS to Pastebin, a site that allows anonymous document sharing. It was not immediately clear who was responsible for posting the data or if any of it was genuine.
In a statement, Macron’s political movement En Marche! (Onwards!) confirmed that it had been hacked.
“The En Marche! Movement has been the victim of a massive and co-ordinated hack this evening which has given rise to the diffusion on social media of various internal information,” the statement said.
An interior ministry official declined to comment, citing French rules that forbid any commentary (which is basically a gag order they are using as a blanket suppression, preventing the dissemination of relevant information) liable to influence an election, which took effect at midnight on Friday (2200 GMT).
The presidential election commission said in statement that it would hold a meeting later on Saturday after Macron’s campaign informed it about the hack and publishing of the data.
It urged the media to be cautious about publishing details of the e-mails given that campaigning had ended, and publication could lead to criminal charges.
Comments about the e-mail dump began to appear on Friday evening just hours before the official ban on campaigning began. The ban is due to stay in place until the last polling stations close Sunday at 8 p.m. (1800 GMT).
Opinion polls show independent “centrist” ( centrist my ass- Open Borders-Globalist-Pro EU-Anti France) Macron is set to beat National Front candidate Le Pen in Sunday’s second round of voting, in what is seen to be France’s most important election in decades. The latest surveys show him winning with about 62 per cent of the vote.
Da Ruskies are at it AGAIN!
They knew it was coming, for weeks while the leaks have been gleaned for accuracy and authenticity before being released. Macron’s campaign has been trying to diffuse the inevitable releasing of the leaks, previously complaining about attempts to hack its e-mails, blaming Russian interests in part for the cyber attacks.
Vitali Kremez, director of research with New York-based cyber intelligence firm Flashpoint, told Reuters his review indicates that APT 28, a group tied to the GRU, the Russian military intelligence directorate, was behind the leak. He cited similarities with U.S. election hacks that have been previously attributed to that group.

Will the French bend over, kiss, then bandage Moma’s Boy Emmanuel Macron’s skinned knees?
