HP spying was elaborate

The NY Times has the details. Attempted bugging of a journalist’s computer, gathering of phone records and spying on their own board members – all with “some degree of supervision” from the CEO and general counsel, and happening earlier and more extensively than previously thought.

The more HP stonewalls this, the worse it will be for them.

Amusingly, the NY Times article is clearly the result of leaks from inside HP.
