"London-based thinktank the British American Security Information Council (BASIC) has expressed scepticism over Ministry of Defence assurances that the subs' operating systems cannot be breached while at sea because they are not connected to the internet at that point. It warns: 'A successful attack could neutralise operations, lead to loss of life, defeat or perhaps even the catastrophic exchange of nuclear warheads (directly or indirectly).'"
