As HP brings on new lawyers to deal with the expected indictments concerning the HP board spying scandal, it's now coming out that the spying went even further than the board and a whole bunch of reporters. Turns out that at least two employees had their phone records obtained via "pretexting" (which used to be called identity theft). It's also worth noting that Patricia Dunn (who has been choosing her words carefully) says that the spying included "a number of individuals outside the company, including journalists." This would at least suggest that some of the people outside of the company were not journalists -- though no such people have been identified yet. Anyone made up "HP spied on my phone records" t-shirts yet?
