Then your report should have been titled "Maybe DAP can be tricked to
download malicious file, maybe not, I haven't got any idea because I haven't
bothered to find out".

Or even better, you shouldn't have bothered posting it because it has zero
content. "There might or might not be a vulnerability in application X" is
NOT information. Uninformed speculation is NOT information.

What you actually observed was DAP not being tricked and not downloading a
malicious file. What you wrote was the exact opposite. Your report is
fraudulent and utterly dishonest.
