In the world, Spain Records Third Largest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks

In Spain, the number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased extremely during the two weeks prior in comparison with the two weeks prior. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 120 percent. That’s the third largest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. However, there was a slight contraction of 16 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 360 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Spain in the course of the previous 14 days. That means the automated hacking attempts increased significantly by 120 percent. Syspeace blocked 5,400 brute-force attacks in Spain.

By means of a comparison, there has been an escalation of the number of automated hacking attempts in Georgia and Czech Republic. With 370 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Georgia has seen a rise of 330 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Czech Republic, the amount has risen by 77 percent to 3,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Spain is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. In the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks than in the course of the previous 14-day period in the world. By now, this year there have been 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. In the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has shot up by 9.4 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 2,200,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
