HP CEO Mark Hurd and former chairman Patricia Dunn refused to take responsibility for the methods used to uncover the source of leaks to media at last month’s US Congressional hearing into the investigation.

Dunn, who resigned from the IT giant last month, laid responsibility for the investigation squarely at the feet of the company’s general counsel Ann Baskins during her testimony and claimed she had no idea the methods being used were fraudulent.

Baskins herself quit HP the morning of the hearing and refused to answer questions when called to testify.

Hurd was a little more accepting of blame, admitting overall responsibility, but denying knowledge of anything with the potential of implicating him in any illegal activity.
