French Presidential Candidate Macron Hit by Hackers, Docs Leaked

French Presidential Candidate Macron Hit by Hackers, Docs Leaked

The presidential election is on Sunday.

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron’s party En Marche claims hackers have hit the campaign just two days before the country hits the polls. Reuters reported:

Some nine gigabytes of data were posted by a user called EMLEAKS to Pastebin, a document-sharing site that allows anonymous posting. It was not immediately clear who was responsible for posting the data or if any of them were 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.

The contents of the campaign started to leak on Friday night, “just hours before the official ban on campaigning began.” France has rules that “forbid any commentary liable to influence an election” and that went into effect at midnight local time.

Reuters continued:

In its statement on Friday, En Marche! said that the documents released online only showed the normal functioning of a presidential campaign, but that authentic documents had been mixed on social media with fake ones to sow “doubt and misinformation”.

“The seriousness of this event is certain and we shall not tolerate that the vital interests of democracy be put at risk,” it added.

But the campaign has said in the past that hackers targeted them:

Former economy minister Macron’s team has already complained about attempts to hack it systems during a fraught campaign, blaming Russian interests in part for the cyber attacks.

On April 26, the team said it had been the target of a series of attempts to steal email credentials since January, but that the perpetrators had so far failed to compromise any campaign data.

In February the Kremlin denied that it was behind any such attacks, even though his camp renewed the charges against Russian media and a hackers’ group operating in Ukraine.

so Maricon is a crook…

this is my surprised face.

really, it is.


check with hillary’s staff, they may be helpful identifying the Russian hackers….

Let’s see.
Released just in time so that the news of the release is out, but none of the contents can be examined. Hmmm.
On pastebin? Not a hacker or a spy site. Though it is occasionally used to post to rapidshare/megaupload/rapidgator/whatever they are using nowadays. Type download sites.

Wikileaks and 4Chan are weighing in


skeptical at first

huge dump

no fakes, yet

4Chan blocked in France

4Chan finds bank account in Cayman Islands

Implied admission from the campaign that at least some of the damaging documents are verified.

Dirty tricks

Cocaine orders (this is not fully developed).

Meth sent to Parliament


A lot of work is being done to digest this huge document dump. The vote is Sunday. 4Chan has been blocked in France. The rationale for the dump appears to be a disaffected insider that could not get any interest from the French media to report.

Russia, Russia, Russia!!!

It’s the new liberal catch-all meme.

Oh for the love of …

Would SOMEBODY, ANYBODY, learn some basics about drug culture?

3-MMC is NOT Meth, and it’s not Cocaine.

3-Methylmethcathinone, also known as 3-MMC and 3-Mephedrone, is a designer drug from the substituted cathinone family, with Empathogen-entactogen effects. 3-MMC is closely related in structure to the popular illicit drug mephedrone (4-MMC), and is illegal in most countries that have banned 3-mephedrone as it is a structural isomer of 4-mephedrone.

It IS a Stimulant, but it’s more along the functioning of Extacy (MDMA).

I have a really radical, probably completely impractical idea:

Don’t put anything in your emails that you’d be afraid for the public to find out about.

I know, who could possibly do that, right?
