French authorities take hardline over Macron hack attack

French authorities take hardline over Macron hack attackFrench authorities took a hard line Saturday on what presidential frontrunner Emmanuel Macron called a “massive” hacking attack on his campaign, warning on the eve of the vote that anyone spreading the information could be committing a crime. The warning came after the pro-Europe centrist’s team lambasted a “massive and coordinated” hack that resulted in the online leak of thousands of emails, accounting details and internal documents late Friday. It was an unexpected 11th-hour twist ahead of Sunday’s decisive run-off after a bruising and divisive campaign pitting the 39-year-old former banker who embraces free-trade against his anti-EU, far-right rival Marine Le Pen.
