100 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Canada

In the past two weeks, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Canada escalated compared to the past two weeks. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have gone up by 100 percent. Overall, in the world, there was a slight growth of 3.9 percent.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers surged in the course of the two weeks prior in Canada as 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased significantly by 100 percent. That means 34,000 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Canada during the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

Sweden and United Arab Emirates have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 910 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Sweden has seen a rise of 110 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In United Arab Emirates, the number has risen by 81 percent to 300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase all around the world. That is to say, Canada is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have risen by 3.9 percent in the world through the last fortnight. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 6.9 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
