Poland Sees a Big Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

The report doesn’t lie — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Poland has went up through the two weeks prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have climbed up by 22 percent. Overall, in the world, there was a slight escalation of 14 percent.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace built up through the previous 14-day period in Poland as 490 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up by 22 percent. That means 490 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Poland during the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, in comparison, an escalation of the amount of brute-force attacks in Georgia and USA. With 310 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Georgia has seen an escalation of 60 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In USA, the sum total has grown by 16 percent to 2,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Poland is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase all around the world. There have been 14 percent more automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the in the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have decreased by 18 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,300,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
