Maybe this also an indication of the fact that people working on defense and real protection of computers and their users are not the same as those working on attack systems.

Personnally, I would even question the situation further: it may be possible that currently, skilled (and possibly not-so-high-morality) people are most prominently recruited on highly-paid jobs; while the people working on defence are most frequently chosen among low grade computer people (possibly with a not-so-low-morality) on cheaper jobs.
That would explain a lot of things; but shapes a frightening next decade for computer security when both governements and big companies need to justify the high wages distributed on this misleadingly named "cyberdefense".

PS: Cyberdefense weapons proliferation... Note I know how to be paranoid too!
