Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Brazil

The data is out — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Brazil has built up during the previous 14-day period. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have climbed up by 30 percent. In the whole world, there was a big increase of 23 percent.

Syspeace registered 200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Brazil in the course of the last fortnight. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 30 percent. Syspeace blocked 2,500 automated hacking attempts in Brazil.

There has been, for comparison, a climb of the number of automated hacking attempts in Colombia and Mexico. With 1,500 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Colombia has seen a climb of 38 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Mexico, the sum total has shot up by 28 percent to 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big increase all around the world. In other words, Brazil is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 23 percent more brute-force attacks than during the previous 14-day period in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has risen by 31 percent. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,600,000.

The data is provided by Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight automated hacking attempts.
