Czech RepublicRecords Second Greatest Rise in Automated Hacking Attempts in the world

Throughout the two weeks prior, the number of automated hacking attempts in Czech Republic soared compared to the last fortnight. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have gone up by 350 percent. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. There was a slight growth of 3.9 percent in the whole world.

In Czech Republic, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers surged throughout the 14 days prior as 660 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts shot up by 350 percent. That means 1,400 total the number of automated hacking attempts in the Czech Republic throughout the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. During a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 15th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

By means of a comparison, automated hacking attempts in South Africa and Belgium have climbed up. With 4,800 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, South Africa has recorded a growth of 390 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Belgium, the number has gone up by 160 percent to 980 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation all around the world. Simply put, Czech Republic is not alone with the problem. In the course of the last weeks there have been 3.9 percent more automated hacking attempts than during the 14 days prior in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have decreased by 6.9 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,500,000.

The evidence originates from 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 information on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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 inspected to find the correct one.

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