A London-based think tank, Chatham House, recently warned that aging and unsophisticated technology such as nuclear weapons systems may be triggered by cyber attacks.
The think tank added that cyberattacks on such systems could cause escalations during times of heightened tension.
The comments were made in relation to the increasing US concern on North Korea’s use of cyber attacks alongside traditional weapons. The rogue regime is considered to be on of the world’s most dangerous cyber actors and is being suspected as the perpetrators behind the 2014 Sony hack.
