Fitness Tracking Company Reveals Locations of Secret U.S. Military Bases

Meanwhile, the fitness tracking company Strava has inadvertently revealed highly sensitive U.S. information about secret military bases, when it published maps of the running and exercise routes of its users. The global heatmaps show the running routes of soldiers in and around military bases, including in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Djibouti. While some of the bases were already known, others, such as a small compound to the southwest of the U.S. military base Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, appear to be undisclosed black sites.
