Macron Says He Is Victim Of "Massive, Coordinated" Hack After 9 Gigabytes Of Private Documents Released

Tyler Durden's picture

As reported overnight, the anonymous source of documents alleging Emmanuel Macron's involvement with an operating agreement for a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in the Caribbean island of Nevis returned to release several high quality images of the purported documents along with promises to release even more documents and identify account locations and the extent of the assets Macron is supposedly hiding from regulatory authorities.

The leaker noted that Macron's assets were not located in the Bahamas as was been reported by some media outlets, but in the Cayman Islands, another known hotspot for tax evasion. They further stated that they were taking measures to conceal their identity because they are located in the European Union and did not wish to be arrested. The leaker also explained that they were one of a small group of individuals working online with a source in the Cayman Islands to expose the leaked information. They claimed that they were in possession of SWIFTNet logs dating back for several months, and would soon not only know where Mr. Macron's alleged accounts are located but also the "extent of the money he is hiding from [France's] government."

Then, earlier today, this is precisely what happened when 4chan released several gigabytes of email archives and files related to Macron. It was enough to attract Wikileaks' attention.

The hacker released the thousands of alleged Macron emails and documents on an anonymous pastebin location:

Torrent Files




Zip/RAR Files




Two smaller files with no ZIP/RAR



Then on Friday evening, Macron's political party said its computer systems were hacked, after "thousands of emails and electronic documents purporting to come from the campaign were posted anonymously on the internet Friday evening."  According to the WSJ , the files had been obtained several weeks ago from the personal and work email accounts of party officials, according to a statement from Mr. Macron’s party, En Marche!, or On the Move. The file dump comes less than two days before the final round of France’s presidential race, which pits Mr. Macron against far-right nationalist Marine Le Pen.

"The En Marche! Movement has been the victim of a massive and co-ordinated hack this evening which has given rise to the diffusion on social media of various internal information," the statement said.

The party said that the cache "includes both authentic and falsified documents with the goal of sowing doubt and disinformation,” which is another way of stating that anything that is potentialy damaging will be claimed to the fake, while the innocuous documents are "authentic."

As Reuters adds, an interior ministry official declined to comment, citing French rules which forbid any commentary liable to influence an election, and which took effect at midnight French time on Friday. Comments about the email dump began to appear on Friday evening just hours before the official ban on campaigning began. The ban is due to stay in place until the last polling stations close on Sunday at 8 p.m.

Already accusations have emerged that this is a hacking similar to what occurred with Hillary Clinton, when over 30,000 emails by John Podesta were leaked, exposing the "dirty laundry" of Clinton's campaign, a hack she has subsequently claimed cost her the presidency. Naturally, the Kremlin has already been implicated as being behind the hack.

Could tonight's hack have a similar impact on Macron? In a tweet, Wikileaks asks "who benefits?" and notes that the "Timing of alleged dump is too late to hit vote but will surely be used to boost hostility to Russia & intelligence spending."


Perhaps Wikileaks is right, although it likely depends on what documents are disclosed inside the hack. Should it be confirmed that Macron indeed lied, as hackers have previously alleged, about an offshore account and engaging in tax evasion, his chances of winning could be deeply impacted. We will present any of the more notable documents we uncover.

There is definitely a large coordinated anti-(((globalist))) hacker group out there though. Whoever they are, I hope they never stop.

Yes, Western democracy is very over-rated.  We should have strong man like Putin.   The greatest generation saved the world from communism and facism.  The baby boomers returned the world to communism and facism.

Jimmy is right. Democracies in the Western world have sold out white people.

If you can't blame the Russians, blame the white people.

You're a "good guys vs bad guys" type of guy right,

If you're not a Republican, you're a democrat. Say something bad about group A, then you must be for group B.

It's not that simple.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand for you.

Nonsense. Western democracy is the best we have. Flaws for sure. And the greatest generation is no fan of Putin. Just setting the record straight.

Western democracys are just the parasite's class's way of farming us now. They give us the illusion of choice, through the well well worn method, create two parties, alternate the milking.

We dont have a democracy any more than we have a republic.  We have rule by fascist oligarch fiat and nothing more.

Without a cause western democracies implode out of shear negligence. They are the off shoots of a time when kings and queens ruled honorably. Too many voices breeds little discipline and incompetence

They know there is a small group pulling the puppet strings. They have the real talent and motivation to expose them all!

I will never stop applauding them.

nowadays Russians for many idiots is like Santa Claus for kids - everybody ungrown believes that those presents are from him, but really there are some other quite close people who do it

Gotta agree. Only this time, it's also kinda like the USA back when the Voice of America was being piped in to their then "Pravda only" media decades ago.

Truth is truth even if / when the "west" is on the other side of the table as it certainly appears to be now.

Love it.

It wasn't the Russians.  It wasn't the Chinese.  It wasn't even the Americans!

In fact, it wasn't any 'state' actor.

Who, then?

Try the free market. 

Think master code-smiths forging tools for sale on hidden hacker markets.  Think hundreds of thousands of unemployed techies from Somalia to Brazil buying those scripts for Bitcoin, then using them, like army ants, to probe every crevice and hiddie-hole in cyberspace.  For desperate skipt-kiddies, it's their only chance out of hell.  Like playing the lottery.  They'll sell whatever they steal to the highest bidder on super silk-roads.

Most won't get anything, some will get small beer, and a few, a lucky few, will hit the jackpot.

You don't think the Russians 'hacked' the DNC servers, do you?  Hell, no.  It was private enterprise.  Maybe some of them were Russian nationals, but all were free-lancing, not working for any government.  After all, Trump pays more on the open market then Putin ever could afford.

It's a new digital wild west, one that will soon kick the stool out from under centralized big government stooges to leave them twitching in the wind.

Thieves Emporium is a primer on this new badlands.  Written as in the form of a novel to keep your attention, it's by far the best book I have ever seen on what is really happening and what is to come.

The Daily Anarchist called it 'Barely fiction' and loved it.  The editors at The Daily Bell thought it was so good the published it as a serial which you can still read for FREE at

Or you can just buy a copy at Amazon (rated 4.6 in 120 reviews), Nook (Same rating, fewer reviews), Smashwords (ditto), or iBooks.

But, whatever you do, get your hands on a copy and put your head into it.  Until you do, you won't really understand what is going on around you.

It wasn't a hack.

It was a leak. Just like Hillary.
These people are assholes and vulnerable. Piss off the wrong people and they leak your dirt.

It's that simple.

Sam.Spade's picture

Actually, it's not that simple.

But you are right, it might not have been a hack.  It might have been an inside theft and sale.

The nature of dark markets is that they are becoming anonymous enough to tempt almost anyone with the amount of money they can offer a snitch.

Risk going to jail for years just because you are pissed at someone?  Probably not.

But risk it for a $100M sales payout?

Now that's a price that could tempt anyone.

Still private enterprise, now made possible by the existance of super-silk Roads.

And also covered in Thieves Emporium.

As I said earlier, if you want to know what is really going on, get your hands on a copy.

Wherever the info comes from, I can't tell you how happy I am that it was announced on 4chan, the online community that regularly and collectively trolls online publcity campaigns, and posted for download on, the greatest cache of live Grateful Dead shows.


IndyPat's picture

Just pointing it out.

Luggenpresse loves to use to terms interchangeably.

The technical know how is very different. The motive is very different.
Leaks are inside jobs.

You could ask Seth Rich about it if he weren't so very dead.
The DNC shitshow was likely dished out by burnt Bernie loyalists.

Or Tulsi. Her sudden exit (and the timing) from her DNC role sure aroused my curiosity.

Sam.Spade's picture

I will grant you that the CIA Vault 7 dump was almost surely an inside job.  But the big question is:  Why was it done?

Maybe a few would take the risk for altruistic motives, but most are motivated by money and enabled by knowing that the growing anonymous nature of the Internet now makes it more likely that they can get a way with it.

If you doubt that, why do you think we still have ransomware?  Or kiddie porn?  Or online drug sales?

So project the dots.  What will be the outcome if we get to the state where anyone can communicate, engage in commerce, and/or travel anonymously thanks to the Internet?

That is the extrapolation that makes Thieves Emporium so significant.

espirit's picture

Is Tulsi still breathing? Not a peep from her...

Just because wall street grinds on money, don't project that onto those that everyone at the 'top' takes for granted.

Interestin. Was a huge sudden Bitcoin drop this afternoon. Someone cashing out?

Sam.Spade's picture

I did not know about that drop.  Yes, it does make an interesting point.

Sam.Spade's picture

Why do you say the Hillary emails was a leak?  The files were on several high-profile low-protected servers.  Guchi 2 has said they were open flowers, that the entire hacker community knew about then, and that he knew of several other hackers who broke into them.

What evidence do you have that that isn't true?

IndyPat's picture

Well, Assange's word, for starters.
He characterized them that way.
They weren't Hillary's emails. They were the pedopizza guys emails.
There was talk that his password was phished, but that could have been inside too. There were emails that said they were loading spyware on each other's machines.

It was that young kid that got offed. What was his name. Right around the convention.

Seth Rich and as of now, still an unclaimed $175,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his killer(s).

Which interesting in & of itself...the "official story" is it was an attempted robbery yet nothing was taken from him and I think we all know street thugs can't keep their mouth shut for five seconds and $175k isn't chump change to a wormy headed street punk.
