Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Mexico have surged through the previous 14 days. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 75 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a slight decrease of 18 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 1,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Mexico throughout the two weeks prior. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts soared by 75 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Mexico was 4,200. Throughout a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

With similar changes, there has been an escalation of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Croatia and Denmark. With 56 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Croatia has recorded an escalation of 100 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Denmark, the number has grown by 70 percent to 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Mexico is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 18 percent less brute-force attacks than in the course of the previous 14 days in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has grown by 46 percent. In other words, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts.
