It looks like they’re in a truck load of trouble and I hope the responsible persons get what they deserve, sheesh!

Quote from Dan Gillmor:

Once upon a time, honorable people were in charge at HP.

Quoting a comment from Schneier’s blog:

Whoever is responsible for this has to be slapped down, hard, to make it clear to corporations that they cannot do this. Corporations have all the information they need to “steal the identities” of their employees, ex-employees, and members of the board of directors: they can provide social security numbers, names of family members, addresses, phone numbers, and enough personal information to convince phone company employees that it’s a legitimate request for information. It is vital that they do not abuse their power. — Joe Buck

Exactly.
