Extreme Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Egypt

In Egypt, the number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers surged in the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14-day period. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 76 percent in the previous 14 days, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was a big fall of 30 percent in the whole world.

In Egypt, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers escalated in the two weeks prior as 3,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts skyrocketed by 76 percent. Syspeace blocked 6,400 brute-force attacks in Egypt. In the country’s measured history, this is the 5th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

By way of comparison, brute-force attacks in Belgium and Hungary have grown. With 11,000 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Belgium has witnessed a surge of 79 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Hungary, the sum total has grown by 75 percent to 510 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline, but Egypt sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 30 percent in the world in the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. In the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has shot up by 10 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The information source is 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 track down and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
