43 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Spain

The number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Spain built up through the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 43 percent. At the same time, there was a slight fall of 18 percent in the whole world.

In Spain, the amount of attacks on syspeaces went up during the last fortnight as 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up by 43 percent. Syspeace blocked 21,000 brute-force attacks in Spain. In the country’s measured history, this is the 8th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

Ireland and Georgia have – with similar changes – been under increased attacks. With 620 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Ireland has witnessed a rise of 45 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Georgia, the number has increased by 40 percent to 690 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Spain is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have declined by 18 percent in the world in the course of the 14 days prior. By now, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have grown by 46 percent on a year-to-year comparison.
