'Pokémon Go' Hack: Altering OpenStreetMap data may create new spawn points in the game
It has been suspected for some time in the Pokémon Go community that Niantic draws data in part from the open-source map project OpenStreetMap to help construct the game map in Pokémon Go, which in turn helps determine where and when Pokémon spawn.

Some Pokémon Go players seem to have figured out how to effectively change the Pokémon Go map by making changes to OSM. This has the potential at the very least to disrupt the way Pokémon Go generates Pokémon spawns and presents a serious problem if too many people try to use this new cheat.
