You are trying to assert that because someone didn't get hacked "today",
that the risk doesn't exist.  Several of us have pointed out simple vectors
for initiating an attack.  Those vectors haven't been mitigated or
invalidated.  Secondly, you do not take into account the fact that v6
deployment is less than 1% across the internet today, which makes it a low
value target.  Within a few years, adoption will account for a significant
percentage and draw the attention of the malicious.
