Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Romania

There’s no denying of facts — the number of brute-force attacks in Romania has increased greatly in the course of the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 45 percent in the past two weeks, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the whole world, there was a slight growth of 19 percent.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up in the course of the two weeks prior in Romania as 780 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 45 percent. That means 2,200 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Romania in the course of the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, a growth of the amount of automated hacking attempts in France and United Kingdom. With 2,400 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, France has recorded a surge of 46 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In United Kingdom, the number has gone up by 41 percent to 2,200 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, Romania is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have increased by 19 percent in the world in the course of the past two weeks. By now, this year there have been 1,800 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 decreased by 14 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The evidence source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

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

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
