Google fired an engineer in July for violating users' privacy. The breach comes at a time when Google is being scrutinized by various government agencies for its collection of unsecured personal data on Wi-Fi networks.

It also comes as federal regulators and lawmakers are considering moves to tighten privacy rules -- something Google and other Internet companies oppose in favor of self-regulation.
