South Korea Police begins investigation in ‘Street View’ privacy issues, Raid Google’s Offices

South Korean police raided Google Korea offices on August 10th as part of an investigation into whether the company illegally collected and stored personal wireless data collected by its “Street View” cars. Police suspect those cars may have illegally captured and stored personal data from wireless networks while they were mapping streets, the Cyber Terror Response Center of the Korean National Police Agency said in a statement.

“We’ll investigate Google Korea officials and scrutinize the data we confiscated today” to see whether company has violated the country’s laws on communications and privacy, it said.

“We intend to find out what kinds of data they’ve collected and how much. We’ll try to retrieve all the original data illegally collected and stored through domestic Wi-Fi networks from the Google headquarters.”
