Will there be any charges?

US prosecutors seem so keen on charging teenagers (remember Aaron Swartz) under the pretext of "unauthorized access to computer network". Well, this:

". . . and communicates them to our servers through a secure, undetectable channel"

... seem very much to be the definition of unauthorized access.

Not holding my breath, though.
