Second Largest Increase of Automated Hacking Attempts in the world in Czech Republic

The data is out — the number of automated hacking attempts in Czech Republic has escalated in the two weeks prior. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 110 percent through the 14 days prior, according to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. At the same time, there was a big drop of 30 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace skyrocketed during the past two weeks in Czech Republic as 7,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts skyrocketed by 110 percent. Syspeace blocked 19,000 automated hacking attempts in Czech Republic. In the course of a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

For the sake of comparison, South Africa and Belgium have been under increased attacks. With 1,800 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, South Africa has seen a surge of 120 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Belgium, the amount has shot up by 79 percent to 11,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big drop all around the world. Simply put, Czech Republic is going against the flow. During the last weeks, there have been 30 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the 14 days prior in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has increased by 10 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is released 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence 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 right one.

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