My local ISP was saving their database backups in an unprotected folder which was literally domain.com/backups

When I downloaded it contained thousands of their clients data.

Reported it to them and got 2 years of internet/tv services for free.

They wanted to hire me but I was still studying in my first year of uni in another city.

    How did you find out?

    @Lensflare I entered their dns ip adress into the browser and noticed that they were using some sort of CMS for their control panel. I googled that CMS and downloaded it then checked the folder structure and noticed a backups folder there. Then I was wondering wether they secured that and when I checked it turned out that they didn't secure it.

    @zemaitis The devRant user theabbie accidentally leaked his classmates' data by uploading it to Github.
