Can't you get to the top WITHOUT getting dirty??
There are new reports coming out that get pretty technical, but they're no bueno none-the-less!
All of them having super similar stories about bringing down rivals to Murdoch's Sky Italia satellite broadcasting company via smart-card hacking!
They claim that the News Corp software company NDS 'cracked the access codes used by ONdigital, the now-defunct satellite broadcaster owned by the then-ITV companies Granada and Carlton, for its settop receivers and then secretly funneled them to a website called The House of Ill Compute (THOIC).'
Pretty technical, right?
Well, both News Corp and NDS (which was acquired by Cisco Systems earlier this month for a measley $5 billion) have denied all the shenanigans.
That hasn't stopped Lee Gibling, the then-operator of THOIC, as he told that he was paid up to nearly $100,000 a year by Ray Adams, NDS's head of security.
Isn't there any honor left in business?
Any at all???
We'll see soon if all of this is true!!
