Sweden Records a Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

There’s no denying of facts — the number of automated hacking attempts in Sweden has increased greatly during the 14 days prior. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 24 percent through the 14 days prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 19 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Sweden during the previous 14 days. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts built up by 24 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Sweden was 16,000.

For a comparison, there has been a surge of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Denmark and Turkey. With 950 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, Denmark has recorded a rise of 27 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Turkey, the amount has grown by 8.3 percent to 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline all around the world. In other words, Sweden is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have diminished by 19 percent in the world during the last fortnight. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,200,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is provided by Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally.
