Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Italy

In the last fortnight, Italy has recorded how the number of automated hacking attempts has increased greatly. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have grown by 52 percent. However, there was a slight drop of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Italy, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased noticeably throughout the previous 14-day period as 3,600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts built up by 52 percent. That means 9,600 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Italy through the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace. In the country’s measured history, this is the 4th highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

For the purpose of comparison, brute-force attacks in Indonesia and Netherlands have risen. With 39 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Indonesia has seen an escalation of 56 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Netherlands, the amount has gone up by 33 percent to 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight contraction, but Italy sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have diminished by 19 percent in the world in the two weeks prior. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has declined by 14 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.

The data 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 find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter 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 ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
