Google dumps Aussie Wi-Fi data tracking


Thank goodness

They must have worked hard to identify what part of the software was responsible for maliciously and clandestinely capturing the unencrypted data. Hopefully the system wont again spontaneously write code that can capture such info. BAD CODE, DOWN I SAY
