Extreme Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Turkey

The number is clear — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Turkey has surged in the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 160 percent throughout the previous 14 days, according to statistics from syspeaces. There was a noticeable growth of 20 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on syspeaces surged in the previous 14-day period in Turkey as 2,100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts surged by 160 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Turkey was 4,300. In the country’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

Thailand and Lithuania have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 380 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Thailand has recorded an escalation of 220 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Lithuania, the amount has shot up by 120 percent to 880 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on syspeaces have shown an escalation all around the world. That is to say, Turkey is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 20 percent more automated hacking attempts than during the previous 14-day period in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has risen by 25 percent. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.

The evidence originates from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight automated hacking attempts.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.
