I had an active slack session which never timed out and was able to read chats for a couple of months before I finally logged out.
Since I logged out (approx 6 months after leaving the company) I notified security about this issue.
I have not downloaded any data from the slack channel and was simply a lurker there.
Furthermore I worked remotely from a different state.
Is this state misdemeanor computer tresspassing or a federal offense or "no big deal"? Is this a potential civil suit? Are they required to let me know if they will press charges? Are they likely to?
