Romania Witnesses a Slight Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Romania have went up slightly throughout the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 19 percent in the course of the last fortnight, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. Overall, in the world, there was a slight escalation of 3.9 percent.

In Romania, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up slightly during the previous 14-day period as 700 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts grew by 19 percent. That means 2,800 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Romania in the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

Lithuania and Italy have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 340 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, Lithuania has recorded an increase of 27 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Italy, the sum total has gone up by 27 percent to 2,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the world. That is to say, Romania is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shot up by 3.9 percent in the world during the last fortnight. So far, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 6.9 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,500,000.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
