Second Biggest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Japan

There’s no denying of facts — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Japan has shot up through the 14 days prior. According to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a surge of 100 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the second greatest growth of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. At the same time, there was a slight contraction of 3 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 280 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Japan throughout the last fortnight. That means the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 100 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Japan was 510. It is the 4th 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.

Morocco and Colombia have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 2,400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Morocco has seen an increase of 550 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Colombia, the number has risen by 82 percent to 3,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but Japan sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 3 percent in the world in the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has dropped by 5.9 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

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