Germany Records a Big Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

The data is out — the amount of brute-force attacks in Germany has increased noticeably in the course of the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have shot up by 60 percent. In the whole world, there was a noticeable growth of 23 percent.

Syspeace documented 3,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Germany in the previous 14-day period. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 60 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Germany was 80,000. During a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

With similar changes, automated hacking attempts in Morocco and Turkey have climbed up. With 150 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Morocco has seen an escalation of 66 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Turkey, the amount has shot up by 54 percent to 660 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on syspeaces have shown a big increase all around the world. In other words, Germany is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 23 percent more automated hacking attempts than during the previous 14-day period in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have grown by 31 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data is collected by Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for firms to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
