Because the ones with the so called ethics either lack the technical
chops or lack the enthusiasm to find simple vulnerabilities. Not very
ethical to take a huge paycheck and not do your job if you ask me.
If the only thing missing to secure those systems was somebody being able
to use sqlmap and xss-me, then that could be fixing without hiring people
who already proved that they aren't trustworthy.
from my experience, the lack of security comes from the management, you can
save money on that (and qa) on the short run.
so companies tend to hire QSA companies to buy the paper which says that
they are good, when in fact they aren't.
most of them don't wanna hear that they are vulnerable and take the risks
if they would take it-security seriously it simply couldn't be owned
through trivial, well-known attack vectors.
