HP staff told not to open Fiorina-A virus
A nasty virus has found its way onto HP's corporate servers, and employees have been warned that the payload is far too damaging for their fragile eyes. The virus, you see, is really a document chock full of criticisms for HP's CEO Carly Fiorina.
The Fiorina-A bug arrives in an innocent package. It's a file with the tag "Document.pdf." When opened, the document appears to be a memo sent from Carly Fiorina to all employees, but it's actually something far more vile. The paper is riddled with attacks on Fiorina's pay package, performance and new found love for DRM (digital rights management) technology.
"Now, many of you may think that I just do not care about the biggest concerns of HP employees," Fiorina supposedly writes in the memo. "But put yourself in my place, if you walked away with $70 million from the merger, would you?"
