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]
