I've seen reference to a few more details on this - namely:

1) The kid, as part of his major, signed an ethics document.
2) He was either told or agreed to not run the scanner again.
3) He did so anyhow.

A better solution would have been to not do the steps 1 and 2 but make
an NDA ("Ok, we know and you know but that's enough by now.") instead.
I mean, some kind of responsible disclosure.

By proposing this "ethics document" it was the college being
unprofessional and not the kid.

Kind regards
