Denmark Witnesses 59 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

Through the previous 14-day period, Denmark has recorded how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has increased greatly. The brute-force attacks have increased by 59 percent in the course of the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was a slight drop of 11 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 750 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Denmark during the previous 14 days. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts built up by 59 percent. Syspeace blocked 16,000 brute-force attacks in Denmark.

For comparison purposes, Egypt and Brazil have been under increased attacks. With 2,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Egypt has witnessed a growth of 120 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Brazil, the amount has gone up by 57 percent to 220 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Denmark is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 11 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the 14 days prior compared to the last fortnight. So far, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 5.5 percent. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.
