Turkey Witnesses a Big Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Turkey went up during the 14 days prior. The brute-force attacks have risen by 22 percent through the last fortnight, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole world.

In Turkey, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up throughout the two weeks prior as 840 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 22 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Turkey was 1,700.

In comparison, automated hacking attempts in Lithuania and United Arab Emirates have gone up. With 320 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Lithuania has seen a climb of 26 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In United Arab Emirates, the number has risen by 17 percent to 48 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decrease, but Turkey sees the opposite. There have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the last fortnight compared to the 14 days prior. By now, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has diminished by 20 percent. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises 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 Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

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