Your view is a poor model for reality.
"Working" is never an absolute. It is far more accurately modelled as a
continuum of "how close does this come to meeting my requirements".
"Secure" is even less amenable to absolutes. Security of a system can
only be meaningful when quantified in terms of risk -- "what is the
likelihood of attack model X succeeding, and how much damage is done if
If you think of either "working" or "secure" as absolute properties, you
will always be disappointed.
