Bayern Munich know how to thank their fans, even if that fan hacks their website.
The club recently rewarded one fan, Daniel 'Ghost' Martins, after he hacked into the club's website.
While it might sound strange that Bayern rewarded a hacker, they did so for a good reason.
As reported by Daily Mail, Martins didn't hack into the website for malicious purposes; he actually did it to warn the club about a security flaw.

Martins, a Brazilian hacker who is a Bayern fan, hacked into the site to check if everything was working as it should. While on the site, he quickly found a flaw that put Bayern's confidential data at risk of being exposed.
Martins then sent the club a report, informing them of the potential danger. At first, he didn't receive a response from the club but suddenly received a signed t-shirt from the club.
To say thank you, Bayern sent Martins a signed Thomas Muller shirt.
'They corrected the fault on the site, and as a way of thanking me they sent me a shirt signed by the club's biggest idol, Thomas Muller,' Martins said.
With their site in working order again, Bayern hopes to get their team back to winning ways.
Bayern are currently fifth on the table and have not picked up a win in their last four league games.
