"NSA + Shadowbrokers proves anything can be hacked."

They didn't prove it as much as reaffirmed something that we've known for longer than I've been alive. It's one of the core laws of security: if a thing can be accessed legally, then it can be accessed illegally. There is no exception to that truth. The point of security measures is to make the cost (time and effort) required to gain illegal access high enough that the cost/benefit ratio favors the defender.
