Former HP CEO Mark Hurd May Have Leaked Company Secrets

Former HP CEO Mark Hurd May Have Leaked Company Secrets

Just when we thought that the gossip about former HP CEO had quieted down, we hear this gem: The fellow may have shared company secrets with Jodie Fisher, the sexy lady who accused him of sexual harassment.

According to a report by the WSJ, there is a letter revealing Mark Hurd’s slip up:

[The letter]alleged that Mr. Hurd told Ms. Fisher of H-P’s plan to buy EDS at a Madrid meeting that began near the end of March 2008. H-P had just made a confidential offer to buy EDS; it wasn’t until May that H-P unveiled the $US13.9 billion deal.

While Hurd denied these particular allegations—which were not publicly disclosed—they probably didn’t exactly help in the grand scheme of things. [WSJ]
