A house in Needham and a corporate scandal

NEEDHAM

What does a neatly kept two-story yellow house in Needham have to do with the corporate spying scandal at Hewlett-Packard Co.?

Turns out the house is one of the addresses of Security Outsourcing Solutions Inc.

California officials investigating the corporate spying at HP are examining the role of the firm in the events leading to Tuesday's decision by H P chairwoman Patricia C. Dunn to step down, according to published reports.

The Globe Business section reports today that little could be learned about the company, which also shares space with a downtown law firm.

Media outlets across the country, including the New York Times and Washington Post, were trying to reach someone at the house yesterday.
