Never assume people's motivations. Why the heck would anyone want to hack the Mr Beanbag website? People hack because they can. People hack for the lulz.

You need no security on your side to go on these sites.
I type my credit card number in when i buy things online. A key logger could have got in through some other route. The narrowness of your thinking is astounding.

If one program on your system has an exploit allowing someone to inject code, your entire system is open, not just that one program.

And it isn't necessarily badly written. Security is HARD. That is why it is imperative to limit the damage malicious code can do if it gets in.

They managed to plant malicious code in a Jeep over its DAB radio.
