9.1 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Ireland

In Ireland, the amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers grew in the course of the two weeks prior compared to the last fortnight. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 9.1 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was a big decline of 30 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew during the 14 days prior in Ireland as 270 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 9.1 percent. That means 1,100 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Ireland through the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

Turkey and Australia have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 650 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Turkey has recorded an increase of 9.6 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Australia, the number has gone up by 6.9 percent to 1,700 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Ireland is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 30 percent less brute-force attacks than in the course of the last fortnight in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 10 percent. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.

The statistics comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
