Nice anecdote!
I remember long time ago, there was an online game to win a LG smart TV. I was really new in programming but really curious about it. So I found out that the game was made with Flash. I downloaded the .swf file and found a decompiler. Once I decompiled it I got all the answers. Then I made a small windows form app that simulated the keyboard. I started my app and then I started the game.

In the first run I was first with a score of 5 seconds (the rest of participants had at least 1 minute). Of course they removed the game. But I learned so many new things because of that 😀
