Wikileaks releases thousands of Macron campaign emails

Source: Telegraph [UK]

“More than 20,000 emails from Emmanuel Macron’s presidential campaign have been published by Wikileaks. The whistleblowing website released the trove of leaked emails on Monday as a searchable archive. It comes almost three months after the Macron campaign was hacked on the eve of his election. … The campaign has previously blamed Russian interests for the hacking and cybersecurity researchers have linked the attack to a group known as APT28 or Fancy Bears, the group believed to have hacked the US Democrats last year and which is often linked to the Kremlin. Russia has denied responsibility and the head of France’s cybersecurity agency, Guillaume Poupard, has said there is no evidence of Russian interference.” (07/31/17)
