Google has failed to hand over some data it inadvertently collected from Wi-Fi networks to German regulators.
Earlier this month German prosecutors launched an investigation into the company’s interception of private Wi-Fi data, after Google admitted that its world-roving Street View cars had scooped up information sent over Wi-Fi networks, thereby contradicting previous assurances that no such data had been collected by its snoopmobiles.
Google decided to delay handing over some of the original hard drives that contain the payload data to the DPA (data protection authority) in Hamburg because it was worried that such a move could lead to a hefty fine.
The company, which intercepted around 600GB of data in 30 countries, was required to submit the drives by midnight on Wednesday.
Last week Google halted removal of the personal data its Street View cars collected from open Wi-Fi networks, following what the ad broker called "some uncertainty" over the deletion process.
A da da... to su onih nebitnih 600 GB wifi network payload-a koje je Google slicajno sakupljao 3 godine :)
Bilo bi sada lepo da ih Svabe opale 3x vecom kaznom jer pokusavaju da se igraju gluvih telefona.
