Brazil Witnesses a Slight Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

There’s no denying of facts — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Brazil has grew during the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 14 percent during the previous 14 days, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a big decrease of 30 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew during the previous 14-day period in Brazil as 360 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 14 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,800 brute-force attacks in Brazil.

There has been, in comparison, a growth of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Poland and Sweden. With 170 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Poland has witnessed a climb of 22 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Sweden, the number has increased by 10 percent to 940 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big drop, but Brazil sees the opposite. There have been 30 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the 14 days prior compared to the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has gone 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 evidence is collected by 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. 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 ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
