Attic bathroom venting into attic, wiring problems

Take a look at what we found in the attic. The bathroom ventilation system was terminated in the attic. This adds moisture to the attic, which in turn is conducive to wood destroying organisms and insects. Also, as you can see from the picture, the wiring is a disaster waiting to happen. This condition is found quite frequently in attics, as many feel that it is "out of site, out of mind". Sure, no one sees it and years down the road the attic is full of mold, or the house burns down from an electrical fire.
