Silent cyber warfare is also going on between two economic giants USA and China. Recent Chinese Prime Minster visit to USA both countries discussed this issue and president Obama advised that both countries should prepare joint strategy to fight against increasing cyber attacks.

Due to joint efforts of international community several international gangs are arrested who are involved in child abuses cases on internet.
