For what it's worth, it's been my experience that people that have the 
freetime to hack other people's work find pleasure in hacking other 
people's work, regardless of the time and talent it takes. If they had 
the motivation to write their own programs, they'd have a good 
programming job. Maybe they do anyway, but as it is, they find a hobby 
in 'exposing security flaws' in other's programs.
