There’s no denying of facts — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Belgium has soared in the two weeks prior. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 160 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the third largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. Overall, in the world, there was a slight escalation of 3.9 percent.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers skyrocketed in the course of the two weeks prior in Belgium as 980 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts surged by 160 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Belgium was 34,000.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, a surge of the amount of brute-force attacks in Czech Republic and Argentina. With 660 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Czech Republic has seen a surge of 350 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Argentina, the amount has gone up by 160 percent to 160 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Belgium is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation all around the world. Throughout the last weeks there have been 3.9 percent more brute-force attacks than during the two weeks prior in the world. Up until now, 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. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.
