Unprecedented Rise in Brute-Force Attacks in Honduras, world

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Honduras increased significantly in the past two weeks. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 2,000 percent in the previous 14-day period, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 11 percent in the whole world.

In Honduras, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers surged in the previous 14-day period as 690 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 2,000 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Honduras was 690. It is the 2nd highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For the sake of comparison, automated hacking attempts in Italy and Switzerland have gone up. With 2,400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Italy has seen a surge of 300 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Switzerland, the number has climbed up by 130 percent to 410 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but Honduras sees the opposite. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less brute-force attacks than in the previous 14 days in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. During the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 5.5 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

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