Anonymous Hacks Ukraine's Customs Services, Leaks Documents

Watcher.Com.Ua reports [uk] that hackers representing themselves as members of the Anonymous group have hacked into one of the servers of Ukraine's customs officials, leaking a number of documents pertaining to the operations of Danube and Black Sea marine customs. In particular, the group stated [en] the following:

Inside you will find much [fun information] related to illegal operations with oil and gas, corruption schemes and also much good edible [intelligence] all related to corruption in Ukraine government controlled marine cargo operations, bribes and [government] kickbacks.

Internet users have questioned the authenticity of the files since they are not electronic versions, but photographs of documents. Some have suggested that the server was not really hacked, but instead that someone inside Ukrainian Customs has leaked these files to Anonymous.
