When all else fails, why not use a very strong epoxy to "weld" a piece
of metal, or a bolt, screw, etc. onto the heads of these idiotic
security screws, and then just unscrew them by putting a tool onto the
attached piece metal, screw, bolt, etc.? Ok, it's a kludge. but it
would work. Of course, if you're trying to get something like your
cable TV company-owned cable TV converter box open just to have a look
around inside (e.g., to make sure there's no microphone, etc. in there
- it's residing in your house, so, for your own well-being you have a
right to open it up and inspect it), then you probably don't want them
to know you've tampered with the screws... of course, you could
always use a tool to carefully grind and polish away proof of the
attachment once reassembly is complete. :-)
