There is no such thing as safe! You have control over what risks you want
to take the aim should always be to lower them but if you want safe, pull
the power plug, place your box in a large metal container and sink it in very 
deep waters.

Microsoft and XBox is an example, lots of industries have loss
leaders. Still waiting on evidence that most security issues are due
to Microsoft though!
