Hackers operating under the title of “Anonymous” claim to have leaked internal emails and other electronic documents from the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics website.
The files were uploaded onto the file-sharing website The Pirate Bay on Monday. The authenticity of the documents has not been confirmed.
The Bureau of Justice Statistics, a branch of the Department of Justice, publishes data relating to crime in the United States.
“We do not stand for any government or parties, we stand for freedom of people, freedom of speech and freedom of information,” the hacker wrote on AnonNews.org. “We are releasing data to spread information, to allow the people to be heard and to know the corruption in their government. We are releasing it to end the corruption that exists, and truly make those who are being oppressed free.”
