Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Egypt

In the course of the last fortnight, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Egypt went up compared to the past two weeks. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 61 percent in brute-force attacks per server. There was a slight increase of 19 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably in the last fortnight in Egypt as 3,700 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. Simply put, the brute-force attacks went up by 61 percent. That means 6,100 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Egypt throughout the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. Throughout a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

With similar changes, there has been a rise of the number of automated hacking attempts in Germany and Australia. With 2,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Germany has recorded a growth of 63 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Australia, the sum total has risen by 54 percent to 1,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase, so Egypt is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 19 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the previous 14-day period in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,600,000.

The statistics source is Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator 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 finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

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