It differs by the person. So here is a wild guess ..

But I would guess bugs are usually fixed 1st by interest. For example: 
Crap that bug affects my stuff too, I should look at that.

Other bugs are fixed by how interesting they. For example: hmmm .. that 
seems odd - I think I'll look at that.

Other bugs are fixed because they are there and its a good thing to do.

I'm not sure about everyone else, but I think the general concensus is 
priority is useful in distinguishing enhancement vs bug. But high 
priority vs low seems ignored.

Security fixes typically don't go into bugzilla. They are reported 
privately to the security list.
