Gordon Ramsey Files Lawsuit Over Hacked Emails


The Guardian reports that celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey is suing former "News of the World" editor Phil Hall for alleged e-mail hacking.

"Ramsay claims that his former business partner and father-in-law, Christopher Hutcheson, passed on private information gleaned from hacked emails to Hall, who then sold it to the Daily Mail newspaper," writes Sophos' Graham Cluley.

"According to reports, information contained in confidential emails was passed to The Daily Mail who reported about the celebrity chef's £30,000 hair transplant and accused him of being a hypocrite for going on a shark-fishing trip shortly before he appeared in a TV program expressing his outrage at the killing of the creatures," Cluley writes.
