Third Largest Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Italy

The number is clear — the number of automated hacking attempts in Italy has skyrocketed during the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 220 percent in the course of the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the world, that’s the third biggest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. However, there was a slight fall of 18 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 2,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Italy throughout the last fortnight. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 220 percent. That means 6,200 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Italy in the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace. In the course of a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, an escalation of the number of brute-force attacks in Hungary and Croatia. With 2,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Hungary has seen an increase of 380 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Croatia, the number has increased by 100 percent to 56 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop, but Italy sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on syspeaces have declined by 18 percent in the world throughout the previous 14 days. So far, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 46 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global syspeaces thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
