Google Has Been 'Lying for Years'04/05/2012 16:44
A few weeks ago, the FCC released a heavily redacted report, concluding that Google could not be held liable for wiretapping, and slapping them with a measly 25,000 dollar fine. Last weekend Google released an un-redacted version of the report to the LA Times, where it came out that an engineer had in fact crafted the Street View software to collect so-called payload data. He also had told several colleagues, including a senior manager about the capabilities way back in 2007 and 2008. So why didn't the public initially get to see the full report? Christopher Soghoian with the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research joins the show to discuss.
