Hindustan: This user ‘hacked’ Google Maps traffic flow in an entire area with 99 smartphones

Hindustan Times: This user ‘hacked’ Google Maps traffic flow in an entire area with 99 smartphones. “We often hear apps and services being hacked or breached resulting in user data sharing without consent. But the latest ‘hack’ found on Google Maps is quite an unusual one. It doesn’t leak your personal information to others or breach your smartphone but simply messes with the traffic information that Maps shows you. The ‘hack’ also shows how easy it is to change the traffic flow and indirectly make millions in the area take a different route.”
