Would you rather they just ran MITM attacks, or stole login credentials and then covered their tracks?
Because that's what the real thieves are doing.
Script kiddies are finding an insecure lock and just spray painting the walls. They are letting you know that others may have been in there previously, copied all your documents and left without trace.
This is what the antisec movement is about. They are exposing the totally inadequate security which large corporations, governments and military sites are using. They are exposing the security experts (whom are paid millions) as pure snake oil peddlers.
Yes, what the script kiddies are doing is an annoyance. But if your site is ever going to be hacked let it be hacked by someone who has just left a note on your front page and told you about it, rather than a thief in the night who stole your data and you never get to know about it.
