I've always said this - its a game of cat and mouse, someone finds and exploits a bug, then it gets fixed. The only way to get ahead is to pay some cats to do it for you. The kind of people who'd happily spend days searching for something to exploit or sit staring at thousands of lines of assembly code trying to find a weakness. The same kind of person who'll be doing it without your knowledge. This is a different kind of job than someone who secures your systems and networks against attack. Both are required
