You keep making moral judgements. Reality is, if you live in a world with
arsonists, you need to have a building that won't catch on fire, or has
fire extinguishers in place. Do not depend on arsonists ignoring you
forever as your security model. Penetration testing to know what
weaknesses exist, what limitations exist, and what can be improved is
essential. Keeping your head in the sand and hoping people choose to do
the right thing only ends one way.
