The HP story gets more and more bizarre at a congressional hearing Patrica dunn said that she thought that everyone’s phone bill was available just for the asking.
Congressman Greg Walden was rather stunned by this to stay the least.
From my time in BT I can assure any FTSE350 Board member not to try this at home – BT takes a VERY dim view of this sort of thing and I know that the senior developers on systems that have this data have to be PV’d by the security services.
There was a case a few years ago when a Journalist got a temp job in a BT building and found out various numbers for Buckingham palace. Boy was security tight after that.
I worked in the building a few weeks later- on an imposably high powered project and they where very strict on physical security even though the project had a couple of senior board members as patrons – could we get a pass for that building no we had to wait for people that the security guards knew!!
