Monday, January 29

TOP STORY

  • Opsec is a four letter word. Strava released it’s interactive global heat map of user activity which reveals sensitive military base locations, characteristics, and patterns of soldiers. Strava says “just opt out” and defends heat map as the data was already made public by the users. If you use Strava, I’m sure you’ve already opted out of the global heat map. And @thegrugq opines, “giving random private companies huge amounts of sensitive private information might be a terrible idea.”

While the heatmap only shows information in aggregate, Strava’s own website allows users to drill down into the tracked runs to find the names of individuals, as well as the dates they set their personal best times on particular runs.
