Google has released its new wireless scandal




Google has a new wireless scandal . Listening to Google and Wi-Fi, then you have certainly only once on the “accidentally” recorded data fragments from open wireless networks think . Google was then asked to be deleted and fined. The new “scandal” refers stored network passwords of all wireless networks to which you have connected you.


Google offers to save them on the Google servers – for backup purposes. During the transfer of these encrypted passwords expire, but the storage will take place unencrypted. This is perhaps interesting for the individual user, but other users can not learn this WLAN password that has not access to the smartphone or the complete account information.

Nevertheless, this fact in times of Prism and NSA is naturally weighted differently. This circumstance is also interesting because Google advises otherwise , do not give their own wireless password from your hand.

Evil tongues say that we “preach water and drink wine,” this methodology as described. filed the fault by the way Micah Lee, chief engineer at the U.S. civil rights organization EFF. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is founded in July 1990 by Mitchell Kapor and John Perry Barlow non-governmental organization based in San Francisco, which deals with the civil rights in cyberspace.

The goal is a media self-determination of citizens. Micah Lee requested that Google encrypts the passwords, as it should also be made ​​by Apple. Your mustard! Intention? Stupidity? Negligence? Actually, it should be easy to encrypt the data – should work in Chrome too.
