An employee of Boston Market leaves open the side door where hundreds of chickens are sitting on a rack. I drive up with my truck and haul away all of the chickens. Did I steal?

 

Just because the private information was exposed on a public server didn't make it less private or less wrong to take it. If GitHub accidentally exposes your private repository through a URL does that give me the right to steal all of your code? Forget guns and free speech, the founders were much more concerned with securing the rights of private property.

Uhm are you kidding me, you’re saying because he wrote a “script” rather than using a browser (and I guess a pen and paper to write down the email address provided by the at&t server) this means in your mind he should go to “jail” for 10 years for “Hacking”.

 

How about we also arrest the coder who released such shoddy code for “Fraud” for cashing his paychecks while “Impersonating a programmer”.

 


Cheers,

Dean

After reading the article, it looks like this guy is in the wrong.  He wrote a script to find the emails, then emailed gawker instead of AT&T.  I'm sure if he emailed AT&T about it first, he wouldn't be in jail right now.

How about sending the shitty coder who allowed this to happen to jail for a year and force AT&T to improve their standard so my data isnt at risk!!
