Pine GapStrava, a fitness-tracking app, is revealing potentially sensitive information about military bases and supply routes via its global heatmap website.

On the weekend, 20-year-old Australian university student Nathan Ruser noticed the map showed the locations and running routines of military personnel at bases in the Middle East and other conflict zones.
