A network engineer managed to listen to phone calls to the FBI and Secret Service by using Google Maps.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Bryan Seely created fake listings and was able to listen to calls at the FBI office in San Francisco and the Secret Service office in Washington D.C.

When calls were made to those offices, Seely could record the conversation.

Google said it has made adjustments to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

Seely alerted both agencies to the problem.
