Nuclear launch codes were 00000000

For two whole decades, the US nuclear launch codes weren't exactly difficult to guess.

That could be the safest option these days. If we assume that such code is in the first chunks of data hardly anyone would look there when cracking it hehe

Unless knowing the codes for launch would enablea person to change them, I'm not sure what difference knowing them would make. I suspect that it requires more than one set of codes to activate/arm the nukes before they fly. Just a guess, but one thing the early handlers of these plagues did seem to do well was securing them from accidental detonation. It took a few accidents and close calls for them to learn the lessons, though. Here's agood book on the subject. By the time I finished it I was just SMH.
