They do it for the challenge. They love getting root access. It's like scoring with a hard-to-get chick. It's an ego trip and an accomplishment high.

A Linux dedicated website was hacked?

Proves that these dudes are only out to stir up things. Where's the honor in messing with Linux?

Correction: What's the point? It's like the idiots that hacked Minecraft and League of Legends, what did they ever do to anyone? Besides, what could one gain from hacking Linux other than maybe virus infections? As far as I know (unless someone corrects me.), they don't really earn money outside of Donations (if any.)

If its just to stir stuff up, then there are better targets out there.
