The best part was that he got banned for 60 days for his trouble...
The line between white-hats, gray-hats, and black-hats is often as thin as whether one follows responsible disclosure
, full disclosure, or simply using the exploit. Those around at the time will recall which path Mr. Hosp opted to take.
His ban was well-deserved.
(IIRC, it ended up a 60-day ban because the mods chose to go easy on him and treat it as a Rule 11 sanction -- which was simply added to his already large heap of well-earned sanctions to yield the ban length-- rather than a Rule 9 sanction, where the mods could have exercised discretion to ban him for a year. But I may not be remembering correctly, and am not interested enough to review the public mod logs.)
