I am able to authenticate through the authentication server with an incorrect key.

For example, Let's say my key is XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX. I can also get authenticated with XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXJ where J is any character. So we need the correct license key, but then you can append any character after the correct license key and still be authenticated.

This is a known issue when using Base32 encoding for the key. It is not really an problem - because you have to actually know a valid key in order to be able to append a character - so it does not represent a vulnerability.
