27 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Denmark

In the past two weeks, the amount of brute-force attacks in Denmark increased greatly compared to the past two weeks. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 27 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Denmark, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up throughout the 14 days prior as 950 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 27 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Denmark was 22,000.

There has been, for comparison purposes, a surge of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Netherlands and Sweden. With 1,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Netherlands has witnessed a growth of 33 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Sweden, the sum total has grown by 24 percent to 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Denmark is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. During the last weeks, there have been 19 percent less brute-force attacks than during the previous 14 days in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have grown by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.
