German prosecutors investigating Google

German prosecutors have launched an investigation of Google Inc. in connection with a privacy breach that involved it recording fragments of people`s online activities through unsecured Wi-Fi networks.



Berlin: German prosecutors have launched an
investigation of Google Inc. in connection with a privacy
breach that involved it recording fragments of people`s online
activities through unsecured Wi-Fi networks.
Hamburg prosecutor Wilhelm Moellers told the news agency
DAPD today that his office launched the investigation after a
complaint was filed with their office against undisclosed
Google employees.

Google acknowledged the privacy breach in an apology
issued last Friday.
The US Internet giant has come under fire from German
authorities. The consumer protection minister, Ilse Aigner,
has said the "alarming incident" showed that Google lacks an
understanding of the need for privacy.
