MIT has a misconfigured server


I was doing some reading and came across someone who found a misconfigured server at MIT that made some files public that they probably don't want. If i report it will i get in trouble since i looked around for a few minutes?

No. If you didn't force things it's their mistake. Besides, they already got your (proxy) IP.

Excellent move.
