In the world, Belgium Sees unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Belgium surged throughout the last fortnight. According to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a surge of 1,600 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the world, that’s the greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers soared during the previous 14-day period in Belgium as 6,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts shot up by 1,600 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Belgium was 290,000. In the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

In comparison, brute-force attacks in Georgia and Spain have gone up. With 370 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Georgia has seen a rise of 330 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Spain, the number has increased by 120 percent to 360 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Belgium is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 16 percent in the world throughout the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 2,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has grown by 9.4 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 2,200,000.

The information originates from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight brute-force attacks.
