Norway Sees 4.4 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Norway have increased in the course of the two weeks prior. Statistics from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 4.4 percent. In the whole world, there was a slight increase of 19 percent.

In Norway, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew through the previous 14-day period as 360 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts grew slightly by 4.4 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,800 brute-force attacks in Norway.

Czech Republic and USA have – by way of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 2,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Czech Republic has witnessed an escalation of 5.8 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In USA, the number has risen by 4.1 percent to 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase all around the world. In other words, Norway is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have gone up by 19 percent in the world throughout the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has dropped by 14 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is released from 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 information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

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