There’s no denying of facts — the number of brute-force attacks in Norway has increased in the course of the two weeks prior. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 18 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 420 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Norway throughout the previous 14 days. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 18 percent. That means 4,300 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Norway during the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 14th highest number of brute-force attacks 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.

There has been, for a comparison, a climb of the amount of brute-force attacks in Hungary and USA. With 930 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Hungary has witnessed an increase of 19 percent compared to the last fortnight. In USA, the sum total has increased by 15 percent to 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.
