Germany Records 5.4 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the past two weeks, Germany has witnessed how the amount of automated hacking attempts has grew. According to evidence from syspeaces, there was an escalation of 5.4 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the whole world, there was a slight increase of 18 percent.

In Germany, the amount of attacks on syspeaces grew during the last fortnight as 1,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 5.4 percent. That means 52,000 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Germany in the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace. In the course of a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 9th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

There has been, with similar changes, an escalation of the amount of brute-force attacks in Brazil and Hong Kong. With 150 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Brazil has seen a climb of 7.9 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Hong Kong, the sum total has risen by 1.8 percent to 23 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Germany is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight growth all around the world. Throughout the last weeks there have been 18 percent more automated hacking attempts than throughout the previous 14 days in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased by 33 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,200,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

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

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 right one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
