Mexico Records a Big Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

There’s no denying of facts — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Mexico has increased greatly during the past two weeks. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 40 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole world.

In Mexico, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased noticeably in the 14 days prior as 240 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. Simply put, the brute-force attacks increased noticeably by 40 percent. Syspeace blocked 940 automated hacking attempts in Mexico.

For comparison purposes, there has been a growth of the amount of brute-force attacks in Romania and Switzerland. With 910 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Romania has witnessed a surge of 43 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Switzerland, the amount has risen by 35 percent to 450 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Mexico is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 16 percent in the world throughout the previous 14-day period. Up until today, this year there have been 2,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 9.4 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 2,200,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

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 avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
