Actually I think that's a much more interesting question.
Was the angleshot legal or illegal? I mean as opposed to unethical/impolite.
If it was legal, then we know what the floor did was illegal. He absolutely can't be telling another player information while in a hand about his opponent.
If it was illegal, then what's the punishment? Waiting until he gets in another hand and helping the opponent? In a way, this is a double whammy for the original opponent who got angleshot. He gets the angle, and then another one of his competitors gets help during a hand, which indirectly hurts him again.
Our gut reaction toward the floor's action is "alright!". But really, it wasn't allowed was it?
