Moscow competitors are suspected of allegedly hacking a computer system of "Ural worker" printing house. The damage is estimated to be tens of thousands of Russian rubles.

The hacking was detected after Internet-traffic analysis that amounted to 30Gb. Hackers broke into the system through an e-mail port.

Employees of the printing office managed to prevent data leakage, but a hacker had time to bring almost 80,000 of Russian roubles ($1,500) of damage. Network administrators determined that hackers used Internet through a Moscow ISP. Experts consider several cases: from hooliganism to competitive activity.

The management of the printing office are still thinking to submit an application to police.
