Second Largest Rise of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Czech Republic

The data is out — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Czech Republic has soared during the previous 14 days. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a rise of 180 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the second biggest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. Overall, in the world, there was a big increase of 25 percent.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers skyrocketed during the two weeks prior in Czech Republic as 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks escalated by 180 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Czech Republic was 4,300. During a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 6th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

There has been, for a comparison, an increase of the amount of brute-force attacks in Colombia and Lithuania. With 3,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Colombia has seen a surge of 220 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Lithuania, the number has grown by 110 percent to 730 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a great increase all around the world. That is to say, Czech Republic is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shot up by 25 percent in the world in the course of the previous 14 days. By now, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. That is on the same level as the same period last year. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace 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 Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trailblazer 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 eventually 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 protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
