I say go for it. If they can't take criticism, then you shouldn't be
working for them anyways. If they are really interested in improving
the infrastructure, they will evaluate your finding, and consider you
as as suitable candidate for fixing the security holes.


I completely disagree. Proving that you've been poking around
unauthorized is a dangerous venture. Most likely it will prove that
you are incapable of reigning in your curiosity and the company
will consider you a threat more than a benefit. Companies don't
like cowboys, they want a team player. Curiosity killed the contract.
