    Yes, all platforms are insecure, and there's a ton of money in compromising them, so of course they'll get compromised.

    There's also a ton of money in running a meth lab. Which, as it happens, is a skill that obviously requires knowledge and painstaking care, and maybe other things not so obvious to people like me who don't run meth labs. But drug suppliers don't get a tenth as much adulation from the press as grayhats...

    Edit: no offense to penetration testers here, I just find the public attitude towards grayhats really annoying. I get "grudging respect," but there's such a thing as giving people a bit too much of that IMO.
