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

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