French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron served up a “Keyser Soze”.
The Russian hackers known as Fancy Bear dumped gigabytes of emails and documents literally minutes before the Blackout.
The blackout is a French election law that bans political news or dissemination during an election weekend.
Macron made a last second campaign announcement that the leaked documents were bogus.
How did he know?
Because he outfoxed the hackers. Seeing tons of phishing emails in their inboxes, his digital team created fake documents and emails. And then intentionally infected their computers.
Now this latest leak is a shrug and the French election has not been upended.
