What is ethical? - Harvard Business School rejects "hackers"

Post by ClintBarton » Fri Jul 06, 2018 11:01 am

Hi,

It's a bit murky at best, but Harvard has decided to reject all applications from people who peeked on ethical grounds.I'm all for ethics in business, but I'm not so sure about this one. Someone left information about yourself (no-one was able to access any account but their own without an ID and password) in a space on a publicly accessible web server and you take a peek at it. Is that really unethical? Are Harvard and the other schools involved (there were several) overreacting? Or is this strict interpretation of ethics what we need in the post-Enron world?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

you can't blame harvard either. a piece of cake on the table. publicly accessible, just remove the cover and take. doing what was not supposed to. even easy sql injection holes should not be exploited

on the other hands, they might think a bit about the sec people they employ, or it might have been ... a honesty test, preparing the businessmen of the future ...
