FinlandSees Second Greatest Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in the world

Through the previous 14-day period, Finland has seen how the amount of automated hacking attempts has soared. Statistics from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 170 percent. That’s the second greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 14 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace soared through the two weeks prior in Finland as 290 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 170 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Finland was 290.

There has been, for comparison, an increase of the sum total of brute-force attacks in United Arab Emirates and El Salvador. With 210 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, United Arab Emirates has witnessed a climb of 470 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In El Salvador, the number has grown by 73 percent to 45 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Finland is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 14 percent in the world through the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.

The information source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

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