HP Chair to Step Down

Hewlett Packard Chairwoman Patricia Dunn will step down from that position in January. This following last week's news that possibly illegal tactics were used by investigators for the company in tracking down leaks.
Dunn was angry about the media leaks and commissioned an unnamed outside firm to identify their source. They used Social Security numbers and other personal information to get phone companies to turn over detailed logs of home phone calls of reporters and board members.

She plans to remain on the board of directors. HP President and CEO Mark Hurd reportedly will become chairman.
