A Classic case of the horse has bolted after the stable door was shut. What is
done cannot be undone. Once the genie is out of the bottle...it is extremely
to get it back in again...:-). You might forget it, I might forget it, but the
world wide web doesn't.
What a Strava-palava
You'd have thought the Green Machine would be up on this already, given how
America's enemies have blundered into this sort of opesec gotcha in the past.
In 2015, a Daesh-bag fighter published a picture of his fellow terror bastards
on social media with location data included in the snap – and 22 hours later,
Uncle Sam showed him the real meaning of
with three very large explosives sending him to the next world.
Russian military authorities also got caught out the year before. In 2014, with
Russia denying its troops were invading Ukraine, its soldiers posted several
selfies that location data showing were within the, er, Ukrainian borders.
As always, check the privacy settings of your apps – and not just Strava's. ®
