Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Turkey have increased noticeably through the last fortnight. Statistics from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 43 percent. In contrast, there was no change in the number of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

For comparison, there has been a rise of the number of automated hacking attempts in Italy and Australia.

In Australia, the number has shot up by 31 percent to 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been almost stable, but, as said, Turkey has rising difficulties. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 9.4 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.
