Biggest Rise of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Brazil

In Brazil, the sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers soared in the course of the past two weeks in comparison with the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 310 percent throughout the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. Such rise in brute-force attacks on Windows servers is unprecedented anywhere else in the world. However, there was no change in the amount of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

In Brazil, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers soared through the previous 14-day period as 970 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts shot up by 310 percent. Syspeace blocked 11,000 automated hacking attempts in Brazil. It is the 8th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

Denmark and Netherlands have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 3,000 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Denmark has seen a surge of 160 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Netherlands, the amount has grown by 130 percent to 2,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have declined by 9.4 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.

The statistics originates from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for businesses to fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
