It's very simple: If i have the internet turn off, hackers won't
download anything. If i am online, hackers that breaks my iptables can
download anything. But, no matter how intelligent the hacker can be, if
the document is joined with more size the only option is split the
document of the rest.

If it can be made, okay. But if it can't be made, there is impossible
for him download the entirely file, so it's untouchable. 

Open the document and save it in another document, split the document of
the rest. What more options are there?
