The HP Scandal Getting More Messy

The HP Scandal is getting more and more messy. I am a little surprised as to how different piece of information relating to the same issue can keep appearing daily –that too from very wide sources. Sensationalism apart – the concern here are far too more serious: Internal emails from HP allegedly point to a new set of players in the company's controversial leak probe, three major U.S. papers report today. One paper ties the probe to the highest corporate level, and the other two point to more specific names. All this while federal and state criminal investigations continue their investigations.

The story details HP's attempts to infect Cnet reporter Dawn Kawamoto's computer with software that would track who she sends a planted email to. Dunn and Hurd enthusiastically approved the plan, according to emails obtained by the Post!! HP CEO thinks that this has nothing to do with the strategy or operations of HP and adds that what began as an effort to prevent the leaks of confidential information from HP's boardroom ended up heading in directions that were never anticipated. Well, the stockmarket thinks of this otherwise - in this case the market may be sending the right message to the board members of HP.
