Logical falacy alert! "I've been shown that my front door lock can be picked. Therefore I don't bother locking my front door now."

If it were trivially easy to simultaneously attempt to pick all the locks in the world in a short timescale, and your lock was pickable, then there really would be no difference. If there is an attack vector, and it can be found and exploited at zero cost to the attacker, you will be attacked.
