Absolutely. I've made this comparison in the past myself: if someone notices your door is wide open and unlocked, peeks inside to make sure nothing's wrong, and then calls you up to say "hey, your door is wide open" without taking anything, he/she's just being a good samaritan, not a criminal.
The security researcher's lot is not an easy one. This player is an essential part of the security ecosystem, an experienced security person who tries and finds security holes in systems so that they can be flagged and fixed. The problem is that the good guy security researcher—at a glance—looks and acts an awful lot like a bad guy cyberthief. From the CISO's desk, how is one to tell the difference?
