We know from logic that it is sufficient to disprove a proposition (e.g., that a system is secure) by demonstrating only one example in which the proposition is false (e.g., a successful penetration).
Согласно логике опровержения утверждения (о безопасности системы), достаточно найти только один случай, при котором утверждение неверно (т.е. существует возможность успешного взлома системы).
