One other thing to consider here is that these $4,500 are not packaged with a felony.

Selling vulns/exploits may be distasteful, but it's not illegal.

If you sell an exploit to someone who then uses it for illegal purposes you could be prosecuted for your involvement in that crime.

Only if they can prove that you knew exactly who you were selling to and for what purpose. This is a pretty high standard to meet...

If you say so. I think you're probably wrong about this.
