Sweden Witnesses No Change in Brute-Force Attacks

In Sweden, the sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers remained unchanged during the previous 14-day period in comparison with the previous 14-day period. According to statistics from Syspeace-secured servers, the sum total of automated hacking attempts stayed the same. In the whole world, there was a great increase of 23 percent.

In Sweden, the number of attacks on syspeaces showed no change throughout the last fortnight as 1,100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That’s on the same level as the two weeks prior. Syspeace blocked 13,000 brute-force attacks in Sweden.

Belgium and Australia have witnessed no significant changes in automated hacking attempts during the 14 days prior. There have been 660 of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in Belgium through the previous 14-day period. In Australia the number is 1,500.

By now, 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 sum total of brute-force attacks has shot up by 31 percent. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.

The data comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
