Denmark Witnesses a Noticeable Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

There’s no denying of facts — the number of automated hacking attempts in Denmark has increased slightly during the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have grown by 16 percent throughout the previous 14-day period, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the whole world, there was a great increase of 25 percent.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew during the previous 14-day period in Denmark as 3,600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 16 percent. That means 100,000 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Denmark in the course of the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. In the country’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

There has been, in comparison, a surge of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Poland and Switzerland. With 200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Poland has witnessed a surge of 16 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Switzerland, the number has grown by 3.2 percent to 220 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Denmark is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a noticeable growth all around the world. There have been 25 percent more brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the in the past two weeks compared to the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has remained unchanged. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 2,000,000.

The statistics is collected by 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

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 right one.

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