Third Largest Rise of Automated Hacking Attempts in the world in France

The number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in France increased extremely in the course of the last fortnight. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have risen by 100 percent. That’s the third greatest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 16 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased significantly during the past two weeks in France as 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks escalated by 100 percent. Syspeace blocked 33,000 automated hacking attempts in France. It is the 15th highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

Netherlands and Egypt have – in comparison – been under increased attacks. With 2,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Netherlands has seen a rise of 110 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Egypt, the sum total has grown by 69 percent to 2,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

France is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 16 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers during the two weeks prior compared to the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has diminished by 20 percent. Simply put, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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 right one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
