Quote:
Online fitness tracker Strava has published a "heatmap" showing the paths its users log as they run or cycle.

It appears to show the structure of foreign military bases in countries including Syria and Afghanistan as soldiers move around them.

The US military was examining the heatmap, a spokesman said.


Others who have examined the situation see a huge OPSEC issue. The Pentagon is deciding whether there's a need for additional training on the subject. (As in, "turn off the damn tracking.")

One possible safeguard is to prohibit military and deployed civilian members from taking them to their deployed locations.
