France Records a Noticeable Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

In the last fortnight, France has seen how the number of automated hacking attempts has grew slightly. Statistics from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have shot up by 18 percent. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 2,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in France through the 14 days prior. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 18 percent. Syspeace blocked 45,000 brute-force attacks in France. Throughout a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 14th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

By way of comparison, Egypt and Sweden have been under increased attacks. With 1,800 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Egypt has seen a rise of 19 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Sweden, the sum total has gone up by 16 percent to 850 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall all around the world. In other words, France is going against the flow. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less automated hacking attempts than through the two weeks prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 2,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has increased by 9.4 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 2,200,000.
