10 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Australia

In Australia, the amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers increased in the past two weeks in comparison with the previous 14-day period. According to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a climb of 10 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 18 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up slightly through the two weeks prior in Australia as 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased by 10 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Australia was 53,000. In the country’s measured history, this is the 14th highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

Egypt and Turkey have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 1,900 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, Egypt has witnessed an escalation of 12 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Turkey, the number has gone up by 10 percent to 920 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall all around the world. That is to say, Australia is going against the flow. There have been 18 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on syspeaces during the previous 14 days compared to the previous 14-day period. Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has risen by 46 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
