Actually, I think Matthias's actions are more akin to walking up to the
neighbor's house, checking all the windows and doors, and finding them all
unlocked, calling everyone else in the neighborhood (except the homeowner)
and asking the neighbors if he should let the homeowner know about the open
door when (and if) the homeowner asks them over for dinner...

      Matthias' actions are just about as unethical as mine would be if
I were walking by by neighbor's house at night, saw that his front door
was swinging open, and called him up or knocked on his door and woke him
up to tell him about it. Sure, I saw his door flapping around open just
the same way a thief might have seen his door flapping around in the
breeze. It is after all the same door open the same way. What a sick world
it would be if, after seeing that open door, I had to worry about being
accused of eavesdropping or some other such garbage to the point that I
might decide to just look down at the ground and keep on walking!!
