    Group of Hackers Arrested in Buryatia.
    ULAN UDE, January 21 (Itar-Tass) - A group of hackers has been arrested in
    Buryatia by the department for the struggle against organised crime under
    the Interior Ministry of the republic with the participation of officers
    of the Federal Security Service. 
    The criminal group, which included a software specialist, tried to
    penetrate into secret files of the Ulan Ude telephone exchange, which
    contain, among other things, the classified addresses of officers of law
    enforcement agencies. A telephone operator of the city information service
    was also taking part in the hacking attempt. 
    The hackers planned to sell on the "black market" the information obtained
    by illegal means. For the first time ever, criminal proceedings were
    instituted in the republic under Article 272 of the Penal Code, i.e. on
    charges of "unauthorized access to computer information."
