Sounds like McCarty didn't just find a flaw but used it to obtain personal data to which he was not authorized nor entitled and then proceeded to store and distribute that data. Should my personal data be misused in such a way I would expect and require investigation by the police or other appropriate authorities.
If we applaud such misuse of personal data then it becomes all too easy for wholescale misuse to occur under the guise of "security research".
