I have never gotten this fixation with hacking
Some people are fascinated by understanding how something works, and experimenting. Add a general interest in code or security, and it can be a great benefit.
GnuTLS, if I understand correctly, is part of Debian's favored projects because of licensing. It stands to reason that this improvement will trickle out to a lot of users.

But that's a short term gain
It's also not illegal.
