Google agreed to pay a $7 million fine Tuesday after a multi-state investigation into whether the company violated consumers’ privacy rights. The case involved a software program that allowed Google to intercept emails, passwords, and other information sent over unprotected wireless networks. 
Google claims a rogue engineer is to blame. The unidentified person reportedly rigged a data-collection program into equipment that was supposed to only detect basic info about Wi-Fi networks. However, the Federal Communications Commission found some of Google’s managers knew about the engineer’s plan.
