Love to see what you find.   However, what are they trying to hack, the
iSeries system or the IFS files/directories?   From what I've seen the
former is often open due to the pervasive lack of good security
procedures and use of the iSeries security features.   The latter can
suffer the same fate as any PC and can depend on what security policies
are in place, what anti-virus programs are used, etc.

We have contracted with IBM to do some benevolent hacking of our 
enterprise.  As part of that service they send us alerts about some 
security ptf's that we should order.  I am in the process of contacting

them to see if it is ok to forward those on.  (It is a pay service.)
