54 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Israel

The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Israel increased noticeably in the last fortnight. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 54 percent. At the same time, there was a big decrease of 30 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 37 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Israel during the 14 days prior. Simply put, the brute-force attacks built up by 54 percent. That means 37 total the number of automated hacking attempts in the Israel through the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

Hungary and Mexico have – in comparison – been under increased attacks. With 510 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Hungary has seen a growth of 75 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Mexico, the amount has risen by 44 percent to 350 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Israel 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 Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 30 percent in the world through the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 10 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer 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 finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
