What makes you think it would be hours? For somebody who knows what they 
are doing, it is probably more like minutes.

And as for why...

- because they think it's funny;

- because they get pleasure from vandalising other people's property;

- to prove that they can do it;

- to punish you for being naive and foolish;

- to get control of your webserver, so they can store files on it without 
your knowledge;

- or launch attacks on other people's websites;

- or to encrypt your data and charge you money to decrypt it;

- or some other reason that I cannot think of.
