May 6 (UPI) -- The French presidential electoral authority launched an investigation into a "massive and coordinated" information hack reported by presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron moments after the end of official campaigning Saturday.
Macron's campaign said a mix of fake and authentic documents attached to the candidate were posted on social media "in order to create confusion and misinformation." Some 14.5 gigabytes of information, including emails, personal and business documents were posted, CNN reported. Links to more than 70,000 were posted on a text-sharing site on Friday afternoon. The campaign leveled a complain with France's National Commission for Campaign Accounts and Political Financing, which oversees campaign financing, among other things.
