The UN has urged countries to seek a "peaceful resolution" in cyberspace to avoid the threat of global cyberwar.
The comments by the head of the UN's telecommunications agency came a week after Flame, one of the most complex cyber-attacks to date, was uncovered.
Dr Hamadoun Toure told the BBC that he did not suspect the US of being behind the attack.
He added that developing countries were being helped to defend themselves more adequately against threats.
