Depending on how much time a hacker wants to dedicate to this task, if he cannot create an exploit after a certain period of time, he will move on to something else.  The hacker will take the appropriate steps to confirm this as well.  The hacker may be trying to exploit a vulnerability that is known in the organization from which he was recently fired.

Having the people and technology to complete a task, like patch management, for example, are critical to its success.  Often, it is only after an organization realizes that it is not combating patch management appropriately, even with the tools deployed, that they review and attempt to redesign the process.  Any organization that takes a proactive approach to patch management will operate at a lower cost than an organization that waits to react to an exploit, which affects an unpatched system.
