El Salvador Aghast by Third Greatest Rise in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

The report doesn’t lie — the number of automated hacking attempts in El Salvador has increased noticeably in the two weeks prior. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an increase of 73 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In the world, that’s the third largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. At the same time, there was a slight decrease of 14 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 45 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in El Salvador in the previous 14 days. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 73 percent. That means 45 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the El Salvador during the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

For comparison, there has been an increase of the amount of brute-force attacks in Finland and Spain. With 290 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Finland has seen an increase of 170 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Spain, the amount has climbed up by 61 percent to 850 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but El Salvador sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 14 percent in the world throughout the previous 14 days. Up until now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have declined by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,200,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

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

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
