Egypt Sees 19 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

During the last fortnight, the number of brute-force attacks in Egypt increased slightly compared to the previous 14 days. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a rise of 19 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 16 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Egypt in the course of the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts grew slightly by 19 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,600 automated hacking attempts in Egypt.

For the purpose of comparison, automated hacking attempts in United Kingdom and France have risen. With 1,400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, United Kingdom has recorded an escalation of 22 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In France, the amount has shot up by 18 percent to 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop, but Egypt sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 16 percent in the world during the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has shot up by 9.4 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 2,200,000 brute-force attacks in the world.
