HP CEO’s Browsing History Used Against Him

theodp writes “Anything you browse can and will be used against you. An investigation of ousted HP CEO Mark Hurd’s surfing history reportedly convinced the HP Board that Hurd had had a personal relationship with sexual harassment accuser Jodie Fisher, even if not sexual. Just the latest example of how HP ‘work[s] together to create a culture of inclusion built on trust, respect and dignity for all.’ The WSJ reported a person close to the investigation said Hurd had looked at clips from racy films featuring Ms. Fisher, a former actress, while someone ‘familiar with Mr. Hurd’s thinking’ said he merely did a Google search of 10 minutes or so. One wonders how many more ‘personal relationships’ with Ms. Fisher the browser histories of HP’s 304,000 worldwide employees might reveal. BTW, nice to see that Hurd has made it to HP’s ex-CEO-Hall-of-Fame page.”
