      You have to remember youare employed by the company an bound by a contract with them which includes not disclosing sensitive info. Under exteme circumstances a company will also ask you at various points to sign additional non-disclosure agreements (something which i have to do frequently).

      Bottom line is as Dholdi says... the info is the companies and you are employed to use that info as the company sees fit, not as you see fit (no matter how immoral/moral you think it is).

      I would tell the Customer the easy fix and for them to tell everyone who may need that fix. One happy Customer will generate more happy Customers. One dissatisfied Customer will tell everyone they know how bad that company is.

      To be fair, in the example given, I doubt companies would knowing fail to give out info on an easy fix.

      This thread is more in relation to companies future products/initiatives that have not been formally announced.

      I would tell the Customer the easy fix and for them to tell everyone who may need that fix.
      If the easy fix was to give the customer, the username and password from a certain router made for a specific company, then would you still apply that easy fix?

      Not only would you need the customer details, (breach of DPA) you would then be giving out something that Sky have no actual wish to give out to an individual. The Sky routers were designed to be plug n play and the username and password, in an ideal world would not be required.

      What you do behind closed doors is different, but to openly do it on a forum like this and also advertise that fact is like playing russian roulette with a nuclear bomb.

      I agree with what you are saying that would be plain stupidity. Lucky it was only a Hypothetical Question.
