We don’t know much about last week’s Apple security incident, but a security researcher claims he is responsible, and was just doing research and reporting it to Apple.

It is 2013 – testing someone’s live site or service without permission is likely to land you in jail, no matter your intentions. Especially if you extract user data. I don’t know much about this incident, but it is clear the researcher exercised extremely poor judgment, even if he was out to do good.
