Directors of the CBS corporation are nervous that recent leaks from the probe into former CEO Les Moonves’ alleged sexual harassment will legally compromise people who shared the information, or did not prevent the information from getting out, according to a Monday Wall Street Journal report.

The board is stepping up pressure on its legal team to look into the leaking, going so far as to suggest a forensic investigation.

There is reported concern that those who spoke to investigators under the premise of confidentiality will be compromised by the leaks.

A recent New York Times report revealed that Moonves misled investigators and destroyed evidence to cover his tracks.
