During the last fortnight, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Brazil increased compared to the 14 days prior. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 7.9 percent. There was a slight increase of 18 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 150 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Brazil through the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts grew by 7.9 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Brazil was 1,900.

Australia and Germany have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks.

In Germany, the amount has grown by 5.4 percent to 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on syspeaces have shown a slight increase all around the world. That is to say, Brazil is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 18 percent more brute-force attacks than through the 14 days prior in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have increased by 33 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,200,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer 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 correct one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
