Emmanuelle Macron’s team confirmed that it suffered a massive hacking attack after a trove of internal documents was released online just a day before the final round of elections.

Macron’s political movement, En Marche!, has released a statement confirming that the candidate and his campaign team were hacked.

WikiLeaks denied being involved in the leak and hack attack to Macron’s campaign.

The group posted a link to Pastebin on Twitter, saying that the release in question “contains many tens of thousands of emails, photos, attachments up to April 24, 2017.”

Outgoing French President Francois Hollande told AFP that the hacking attack “will not be left without a response.”
