43 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Romania

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Romania have increased greatly throughout the last fortnight. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a rise of 43 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up during the previous 14-day period in Romania as 910 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 43 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,600 brute-force attacks in Romania.

In comparison, there has been an escalation of the number of automated hacking attempts in Canada and Mexico. With 1,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Canada has recorded a climb of 43 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Mexico, the number has risen by 40 percent to 240 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. That is to say, Romania is going against the flow. In the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the past two weeks in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has risen by 9.4 percent. Simply put, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 2,200,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
