Google Street View cars collected personal data over Wi-Fi, entire fleet grounded
If it's any consolation, Google says that the bits of data should be very small and very fragmented. Why?

Even so, Google will submit the software to a third party for review. The flaw was discovered following an audit from the German Data Protection Agency.
Let this be a lesson to you, kids: lock down your Wi-Fi.
