Netherlands Witnesses a Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the 14 days prior, the amount of brute-force attacks in Netherlands increased greatly compared to the last fortnight. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 33 percent through the last fortnight, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Netherlands, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up in the course of the past two weeks as 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 33 percent. Syspeace blocked 14,000 brute-force attacks in Netherlands. In the country’s measured history, this is the 8th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

Italy and Denmark have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 3,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Italy has recorded an escalation of 52 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Denmark, the sum total has grown by 27 percent to 950 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall, but Netherlands sees the opposite. There have been 19 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the previous 14-day period compared to the past two weeks. So far, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,200,000.

The statistics comes from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for businesses to fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
