Australia Accuses Google Of Deliberately Stealing WiFi Data
June 22, 2010
Australia (ChattahBox) – Discounting claims that it was an accident, Australia has accused Google of deliberately holding personal data of users, after the net giant admitted that they had been stealing WiFi info.
Google has been criticized widely for their many privacy violations, from giving information to the Chinese government, to their latest revelation about holding WiFi data of users around the world.
Australia is the latest to consider criminal action against the company, as they express their belief that Google had deliberately allowed Street View cars to gather data.
“I’m saying they wrote a piece of code designed to do it. This is probably the single greatest breach in the history of privacy,” Australian Communications Minister Stephen Conroy.
A mass investigation of the issue is planned globally, including a 30 state investigation being called for in the US.
