Slight Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Brazil

In Brazil, the sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased slightly through the past two weeks compared to the past two weeks. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have climbed up by 7.7 percent. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 18 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on syspeaces increased throughout the past two weeks in Brazil as 170 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks grew by 7.7 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,800 automated hacking attempts in Brazil.

In comparison, there has been a rise of the number of automated hacking attempts in France and Belgium. With 1,000 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, France has seen a climb of 8.2 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Belgium, the number has increased by 4.5 percent to 610 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on syspeaces have shown a slight decline all around the world. Simply put, Brazil is going against the flow. There have been 18 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the two weeks prior compared to the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 46 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally 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 shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
