    At first, I would tell him how I feel about the situation. I think that is not good for my job to be doing that and also we can be both in a difficult situation. At the other side, it is not fair for him to ask me that sort of question because I can loose my job.

    I would decide to reject his request by telling him that I would not feel good about it and I would explain to him what are the consequences of sharing those confidential information. My rejection of his request will also tell me if he is really my colleague because if he is worth and good one, my rejection will not be a problem for him.
