Morocco Sees a Whopping Growth of Brute-Force Attacks

The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Morocco skyrocketed in the course of the two weeks prior. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 81 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

In Morocco, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers skyrocketed throughout the previous 14 days as 360 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts shot up by 81 percent. That means 360 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Morocco through the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 10th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

With similar changes, automated hacking attempts in Switzerland and Ireland have shot up. With 440 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Switzerland has recorded an escalation of 93 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Ireland, the sum total has grown by 62 percent to 600 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost constant, but, as said, Morocco has escalating problems. Up until today, 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 automated hacking attempts has diminished by 9.4 percent. In other words, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
