FRANKFURT/PARIS A huge trove of email messages purporting to be from the campaign of French presidential prospect Emmanuel Macron was posted on line late on Friday, one-one/2 days just before voters go to the polls to decide on the country’s future president in a operate-off with Marine Le Pen.
Some nine gigabytes of knowledge have been posted by a person called EMLEAKS to Pastebin, a doc-sharing internet site that lets anonymous putting up. It was not straight away very clear who was responsible for putting up the knowledge or irrespective of whether the email messages have been legitimate.
A Macron spokesman was not straight away available for comment.
