There is this prominent US based News network which allows people to post comments and vote on the comments. While monitoring the http traffic using fiddler, I felt their ajax post had an obvious security flaw. In an attempt to check if I was correct I created an simple script that went through a loop of hundred repetitions and up voted one of my answers. To my utter surprise it worked. I cannot undo it now. I didn't cause any harm to them or do anything malicious. If they catch my IP, could I be tried for hacking?
PS:I live in the US.
