Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Denmark

The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Denmark built up through the two weeks prior. According to evidence from syspeaces, there was a surge of 70 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was a slight decrease of 18 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on syspeaces increased greatly during the two weeks prior in Denmark as 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 70 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Denmark was 26,000. It is the 15th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

Mexico and Norway have – with similar changes – been under increased attacks. With 1,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, Mexico has witnessed an increase of 75 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Norway, the number has gone up by 49 percent to 440 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decrease, but Denmark sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have diminished by 18 percent in the world during the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has gone up by 46 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked 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 exceptional customer support.
