But the point is we aren't talking about a HACKER. we are talking about some cheapskate corporate suit who probably doesn't know how to turn his computer on. Most companies have an IT department; but most network admins aren't programmers (some can) and if they had programmers, they wouldn't need to hire you. If they did hire you why not pay you to write the code instead of paying their people to go through the hassle of reverse engineering it.

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.
