Looking at the Pakistani nuclear missile computers, could it be that a hacker of terrorist motives could launch a strike on India triggering off a global nuclear conflict?

Perhaps Pakistan could use a safety upgrade for it's computer systems?

The US computers are the mains together with  RF. But the weakness is Pakistan. Their computers are different. Also discussion on US chips are off topic, so I thought I would make a clearer, more specific topic.

Unless you have specific knowledge about Pakistan's nuclear weapons program, which I strongly doubt, this is pure speculation on your part.

Talking about 'US chips' may be off topic in a thread about something completely different but more importantly, in the context of what the thread(s) are about, they are irrelevant because your idea of nuclear launch systems being directly and connected to the internet are flawed, as explained in the other thread.
