Whopping Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Romania

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Romania have escalated in the course of the previous 14 days. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 160 percent during the previous 14-day period, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. There was a slight increase of 14 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace skyrocketed in the previous 14 days in Romania as 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased extremely by 160 percent. That means 9,700 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Romania in the course of the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 8th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For a comparison, automated hacking attempts in Denmark and Netherlands have risen. With 1,700 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Denmark has seen a rise of 180 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Netherlands, the number has risen by 150 percent to 2,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation, so Romania is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 14 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the 14 days prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has declined by 18 percent. Simply put, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence 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 inspected to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
