If one attack vector doesnt work...they will try another one and another until one does work. Your security is only as strong as the weakest point and the defenders are ALWAYS behind the knowledge curve. You can harden to your hearts content and their will still be a unkown weak point. All that is lacking is the will to do so...which in the server world falls under the heading industrial / corporate / national espionage (depending on the data). Throw enough time money and talent at a "hardened" network and it will fail. The only way your hardened network couldnt be remotely compromised is if it had no outside connection. THEN and only then is actual physical access required to get sensitive data...and then you still have other problems to worry about via different attack vectors...buts that another ball o wax all together. ;)

If you dont think that is exactly what happens....sigh. I wish I was as naive as you.
