After Singapore

I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more

Hacking for good or evil?

My employer started asking their employees to perform online attendance recording during this work from home period. Basically I just need to login to a website and confirm my attendance.

As a developer, it is easy for me to create a computer script that runs every morning and simulate me clicking the buttons to perform the attendance confirmation. And to be honest, I was tempted to do that.

But then again, what good will it do? I may get the pride of being able tricking the system. I may share the source code so other employees, good and bad, can use the automation. The employer will notice that, and they may put a captcha to prevent it.

Then, for the honest people, they will have to go through the captcha every time they want to confirm attendance. That, may be, not what I and you want.
