I mean they didnt patch it on the first place...
Mind you if you did fix it for them they would probably never notice.
I have built machines for companies who refuse to pay me a small monthly retainer
to patch (in one case a two year old box), as they see it Im just trying to make
money on them.
Conclusion they get what they deserve.
Add that some moron like a public prosecutor would see you as easy
meat/vigilanty and "do" you for all the crimes under the Sun he/she could think
What happens if your patching breaks the box? or someone hi jacks your code and
inserts a nasty payload?
Conclusion, I often think sensible ppl are in a minority and getting smaller.
