The thing is, I can go on PartnerNet.
So, what exactly do you complain about?
I'm calling you and iQD out because you don't think about your actions.
Don't worry, we do.
In case you haven't notice, Microsoft has reacted.
Great, mission accomplished
This is something that didn't need to be brought to light. Why should people have the ability to parse hidden content on PartnerNet and Xbox LIVE? In case you didn't know, game developers actually like to keep their plans secret for a while, and shouldn't have to deal with (now, thanks to you guys) the public being able to see their plans.
So, Microsoft can fix this little hole now to keep those "top secret plans
What is the purpose of this app besides that? You made a catalog parser, and something to look at channels. Why?
You already answered your question by yourself. To look at the catalog and channels of different countries and under different circumstances in an easy way. Useful for childs between 6 and 99, especially if they're journalists.
Good job guys, you can parse XML. You know how to read a direct feed from a server, and then from another server while skipping the signed header.
Sure, it's a simple app. Nobody ever said something 'bout rocket science ;-)
There are far more interesting features to add here like XCP decryption for all types of XCP, which would be possible to implement here, but THIS would actually be a feature NOT to be released in public and would be quite worse for Microsoft than the actual application which just gave them a little "heads up" to check their white-/blacklists.
