The potential for cyber interference is raising the threat of a nuclear war between Russia and the U.S. to ‘dangerous levels,’ according to former Senator Sam Nunn, a longtime national-security specialist.

A false warning stemming from cyber interference from another country or sophisticated hackers heightens the prospect of nuclear attack, Nunn said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s David Westin and with reporters in the Atlanta bureau.
