That’s the biggest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. There was a big increase of 23 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 1,600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Romania during the last fortnight. That is to say, the brute-force attacks skyrocketed by 270 percent. That means 6,300 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Romania through the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

The attacks on syspeaces have shown a noticeable growth all around the world. That is to say, Romania is not alone with the problem. In the last weeks there have been 23 percent more brute-force attacks than in the past two weeks in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has risen by 31 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,600,000.

The data originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An brute-force attack 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 businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
