NDS says it had no hand in On Digital hacking

Video software specialist NDS, which is in the process of being acquired by Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) for $5 billion, is denying accusations that it once paid a hacker to distribute smart cards codes on the Internet that would allow individuals to hack into On Digital, which later was renamed ITV Digital, and has since gone belly up. The allegations aren't fresh, but the BBC's Panorama documentary show is saying that it has emails that show that executives from NDS knew the hacking was going on and supported it. NDS, meanwhile, has denied it had anything to do with the hacking and pointed to a court case in the U.S. that it says vindicated it of any wrongdoing. Article
