    There's that grey line again. He should have left things alone in this case. He's not a professional pen tester and doesn't work for any security company. Companies will take a lot from the people they pay to do these things or from professional researchers, but not from a school kid. It's understandable to want to follow up, but he simply wasn't in position to do so.
