Hello Gueb,

It depends on your definition of "exploitable" and "success".

A vulnerability can be exploited, but there could be mitigating
factors (i.e. security controls) that could lead to very small gains
from an attacker point of view. For example, if the database user has
very limited rights and an sql injection vulnerability is exploited,
the attacker might not find what he was looking for.

I hope this answer your question!
