Hackers Could Access Trident Nuclear Submarines

While things may have calmed down somewhat in the Korean Peninsula (imho that's just the 'quiet before the storm'), there are other potential triggers for World War Three. Check this out:

Cyber security has become a preeminent issue in the modern world. That’s because so much of our standard of living is now reliant on computers that can often be easily hacked. Computers may make our lives easier, but they’ve given our civilization a whole new vulnerability to worry about.

Our privacy, our infrastructure, and our financial systems are now at the mercy of hackers. But those threats pale in comparison the vulnerability of our nuclear arsenals. Yes, you read that correctly. You’d think that the nuclear arsenals fielded by Western governments would have levels of security that are so tight, that they’d be virtually impossible to hack, but that’s not the case.

According to the British American Security Information Council think tank, the UK’s Trident nuclear submarines are certainly vulnerable to hackers, contrary to the claims of the government.

“Submarines on patrol are clearly air-gapped, not being connected to the internet or other networks, except when receiving (very simple) data from outside. As a consequence, it has sometimes been claimed by officials that Trident is safe from hacking. But this is patently false and complacent,” they say in the report.


I wouldn't put it past Kim Jong Un to order such an attack, esp. since NK was behind the worldwide cyber attack involving "wanna cry."
