Same reason why hackers focus on PC's 1,000 times more then macs, its all in the number of users.
Two people? Most of the world's internet servers run on Apache/Linux. Just because Linux isn't popular among home-users doesn't mean that only two people use it.
Many enterprises, businesses, universities, governments, militaries, developers use Linux/Unix. And GPUs aren't used just for gaming, there are other purposes as well.
It took Nvidia 2 days to release a Linux driver for GTX 580.
Hackers target Windows platforms because it's more accessible and easier to exploit. In fact, hackers prefer Unix-based systems because usually these are servers with a lot of bandwidth and could be used to DDoS, host botnets, spam, etc. But the thing is... Linux is more secured and harder to hack to.
