France warns of Russian cyber-attacks during presidential campaign

IANS  |  Paris 

French authorities have warned the officials of the country's political parties of potential Russian cyber-attacks during the presidential campaign, local media reports said.

Suspicions arose from incidents during the recent presidential elections in the US which involved hacking the private email account of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, Efe news agency reported.

France reiterated Germany's concerns over possible cyber-attacks, as the latter is also holding its legislative elections in September next year.

The director of France's national agency of IT security Guillaume Poupard, estimates that cyber-attacks can have a real impact and change the voting results.

Elections are scheduled to be held in 2017.
