In the world, Brazil Records unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

Through the two weeks prior, Brazil has witnessed how the amount of brute-force attacks has shot up. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 550 percent through the past two weeks, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the biggest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. At the same time, there was a slight fall of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Brazil, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased significantly throughout the last fortnight as 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts escalated by 550 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Brazil was 17,000. In the country’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

By way of comparison, Georgia and Romania have been under increased attacks. With 300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Georgia has witnessed a surge of 230 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Romania, the sum total has shot up by 120 percent to 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall, but Brazil sees the opposite. In the last weeks, there have been 19 percent less automated hacking attempts than through the previous 14-day period in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has diminished by 14 percent. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,200,000.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

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