The only safe place in buried in a hole in the back garden, but it's not terribly useful there. :P

There is no perfect security in a physical world. So what? We have to deal with this fact everywhere in life. We can get robbed. We can get run over by a car. We might fall off a ladder while we're at home.
We deal with this by doing our best to reduce the risk. We've set up a legal system. We have traffic rules. We try to be careful. None of this is perfect. But it works well enough. And you're free to take further action and reduce the risk even more.
Why don't we simply apply the same pragmatic approach to software? Do everything you can (like using a strong hash algorithm) and encourage your users to do everything they can (like choosing a strong password). Then you'll be secure enough -- maybe more secure than you are when you get up in the morning and leave the house.

I am pretty sure your money is insured and even if it is stolen you WILL get your money back.

Jacques1, are you confident enough to make a secure bank website? Or there are things you are not sure about web.

Not necessarily. If they deem your insecure PC leaked the details that let your account be accessed then you are SOL.
