adeelarshad82 writes “Canada’s privacy commissioner, Jennifer Stoddart, has announced that Google’s recent Wi-Fi sniffing was a serious violation of Canadians’ privacy rights and included the collection of personally identifiable information. Stoddart’s team, who traveled to Google’s Mountain View headquarters to examine the data, found complete e-mails, e-mail addresses, usernames and passwords, names and residential telephone numbers and addresses. Google has been asked to do four things before the Canadian Government would consider the matter resolved.”
