Italy Sees 27 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

During the two weeks prior, Italy has recorded how the sum total of brute-force attacks has built up. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 27 percent throughout the 14 days prior, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. There was a slight escalation of 3.9 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 2,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Italy in the last fortnight. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 27 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Italy was 6,400. Throughout a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 9th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

In comparison, brute-force attacks in Lithuania and Romania have shot up. With 340 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Lithuania has recorded a climb of 27 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Romania, the amount has shot up by 19 percent to 700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase, so Italy is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 3.9 percent more brute-force attacks than throughout the 14 days prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 6.9 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The information source is 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 track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
