The ‘pretexting’ technique used in a Hewlett-Packard investigation of board members and reporters has been an embarrassment for the company, Chairman Patricia Dunn said Friday. “I am not happy that the way this investigation has been conducted has led to this major embarrassment,” Dunn said in an interview with CNET News.com. Asked if she believed pretexting is illegal, Dunn replied, “I have no idea, but it’s wrong.”
