Yeah, I've had several occasions where I've had to tell colleagues to stop immediately and report it to less capable people in another department, entirely because of who had legal authority to investigate and fix things.

Even where the Infosec team trust and ask me to do things I'll sit and shadow them while they do the work, using their credentials on their keyboard with me in a purely advisory role (where the advice may be, "..and now type this.")

If you want unrestricted access to hack away without fear, go and join the NSA.
