"Paying people to fuck with people's accounts" is a pretty dishonest way to frame this.



No, you just refuse to think about the larger picture. I went out of my way to say that this person wasn't deliberately harming anyone.

You're acting as if there's no precedent implicated in Facebook learning of someone violating both their normal ToS and the terms of their bug bounty program by compromising someone else's account, and then paying them a reward.

You're wrong about that.

Saying someone fucked with another person's account implies otherwise.


He didn't f* up Zuck's account. Just making a wall post on some account doesn't f* that account in any way.


It's still a violation of privacy though, and these are viewed as serious by the ToS.
