Ethical pickle, need thinkers for this one.?
I think I was given a test run of a new process by teacher as make-up homework.
I did not waste my time decoding the answers that were provided in the code. I did however manipulate the test to show me (and not my teacher) the few answers I did get wrong the first time through.
I ran through an unmodified test the second time around possibly correcting 3/4 of the wrong answers. In essence I got a second try after seeing which questions I got wrong.
Every answer I submitted was from my book, notes, or recollection. I bumped myself from a high B to a low A getting a second try and stopping there. Two more tries would have guaranteed a suspicious 100%.
Do I expose myself as a hacker to dissuade the professor from using this bad process?
If you found a wallet lying on the ground would you:
a. Take the money and leave the wallet
b. Take the money and try to return the wallet
c. Try to return the wallet, leaving the money inside
d. Walk away and leave the wallet
You knew what the “right thing” to do was and you chose to do something else for your own gain. There is still time for you to do the right thing… fess up and tell your teacher. What’s the worst thing that could happen? Once upon a time I did something similar and some called for my firing (I was a student worker who found a vulnerability) but instead I got hired on as a full-time employee and gained some respect from my new boss and co-workers. Heck, the college just might hire you to be on their side. At the very least, leave an anonymous note.
Can the teacher monitor past usage and find out what you did? If so, you’re found out. If not, well, you did a good job on making sure you got the right answers.
DONT EXPOSE YOURSELF ITS NOT WORTH IT
when you 45 years old and you have a family to support are you going to care about this stupid test?
DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF, PLEASE!
