Yeah that is just slightly a fire hazard. That’s ok its in the attic so when it goes catch on fire no one will notice.
IT’S NOT CARDBOARD it’s 1/2″ drywall and it most likely is mostly fire proof baring the electrical connection. what it’s function is, is open to speculation for sure my guess is it’s for attic ventilation, a roof-wind turbine would work way more efficiently
Vent fan for sure. Probably has a metal shield on the shingles. I’ve seen worse.
And that looks like wadded-up fiberglas, not foam. Probably he just scavenged some from the attic insulation to block the blow-by. It’s not dangerous, but it’s ugly. Really ugly. Looks like a 2 AM six beer job.
