10 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Turkey

During the past two weeks, the amount of automated hacking attempts in Turkey increased compared to the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have climbed up by 10 percent. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 18 percent in the whole world.

In Turkey, the number of attacks on syspeaces grew slightly during the past two weeks as 920 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased by 10 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,800 automated hacking attempts in Turkey.

With similar changes, there has been an increase of the amount of brute-force attacks in Australia and France. With 1,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Australia has seen a surge of 10 percent compared to the past two weeks. In France, the sum total has gone up by 8.2 percent to 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Turkey is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on syspeaces have decreased all around the world. There have been 18 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace during the last fortnight compared to the 14 days prior. By now, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has risen by 46 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
