Lots of reasons. Not all hackers just want to be noticed, the might have
other nefarious motives.
I recall one stock scam that involved a hacker placing a "important
message from the CEO" talking about massive accounting problems at the
company on a company's website. Of course, the hacker took a massive
financial position, shorting the stock right before he posted the fake
document. Sure enough, the stock dipped, and the guy made a mint.
They caught the guy and convicted him, as I recall.
