    How to hack legally? If I hack a bank just cuz I know how to and didn’t get caught, what did I learn from it? If I hack a government server and get caught and arrested what did I learn? Like am I supposed to let them know hey umm you have an exploit in the system pay me and I’ll tell you how to fix it… and then they can go oh well tell me or I press charges 😂

    Mrs Richards: "I paid for a room with a view !"
    Basil: (pointing to the lovely view) "That is Torquay, Madam."
    Mrs Richards: "It's not good enough!"
    Basil: "May I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? the Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically past?…"
    Mrs Richards: "Don't be silly! I expect to be able to see the sea!"
    Basil: "You can see the sea, it's over there between the land and the sky."
    Mrs Richards: "I'm not satisfied. But I shall stay. But I expect a reduction."
    Basil: "Why?! Because Krakatoa's not erupting at the moment ?"

    so API hacking is finding a hardcoded token in an apk file and just using the endpoint to auth with that token you found?
