Automatic unpackers are missing, dumpers are few in number, and there are no decent debuggers (especially for the systems other than Linux). Thus, it is enough to process the file using the packer; hackers capable of cracking it won’t be numerous. To do so, they’ll need a strong motivation (which normally is missing).
