In the world, Switzerland Records unprecedented Brute-Force Attacks

During the last fortnight, the amount of automated hacking attempts in Switzerland increased significantly compared to the previous 14-day period. According to statistics from syspeaces, there was a surge of 400 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the largest increase of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. There was a big increase of 20 percent in the whole world.

In Switzerland, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up in the previous 14 days as 180 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 400 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Switzerland was 1,200.

There has been, for a comparison, a rise of the number of automated hacking attempts in Canada and Thailand. With 1,800 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Canada has recorded an escalation of 240 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Thailand, the amount has risen by 220 percent to 380 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Switzerland is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big increase all around the world. Throughout the last weeks there have been 20 percent more brute-force attacks than throughout the previous 14-day period in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. During the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 25 percent. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.
