Cyber security firm chief says that attacks can cause similar damage to Black Friday shutdowns.

The growing incidences of Distributed Denial of Services attacks on e-business companies (see previous reports) continues to concern cyber security firms, prompting one company to publish an infographic on the issue this week.

In publishing the infographic, Gold Security notes that online gambling sites, where 60% of transactions occur in real-time, are especially vulnerable, and just an hour of DDoS activity can result in the loss of up to $40,000 in lost business.

Chief executive Anthony Khamsei drew a startling comparison, claiming that the potential damage to a sites' traffic was like being hit with a Black Friday calamity several times a year.

Gold Security says that most DDoS attacks emanate from Asia, with 14.9% from China, 13.8% from Vietnam and 8.1% from Thailand.

9.7 of attacks have been tracked to US sources, and 9.5% to Brazil.
