Australia Records No Significant Change in Automated Hacking Attempts

The report doesn’t lie — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Australia has remained the same during the last fortnight. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured servers, the amount of brute-force attacks stayed the same. There was an escalation of 23 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers showed no change in the course of the previous 14 days in Australia as 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That’s on the same level as the previous 14-day period. Syspeace blocked 50,000 brute-force attacks in Australia. It is the 13th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

Belgium and Sweden have recorded no significant changes in brute-force attacks during the previous 14-day period. There have been 660 of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in Belgium throughout the 14 days prior. In Sweden the amount is 1,100.

Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has gone up by 31 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The information is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence 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 automated hacking attempt, 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 right one.
