In the world, Italy Records Third Greatest Increase of Automated Hacking Attempts

There’s no denying of facts — the number of brute-force attacks in Italy has increased significantly in the course of the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have increased by 270 percent in the two weeks prior, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the third greatest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. However, there was a slight contraction of 17 percent in the whole world.

In Italy, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased significantly throughout the previous 14-day period as 2,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace.

In a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 11th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

For the sake of comparison, brute-force attacks in Spain and Argentina have climbed up. With 440 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Spain has witnessed a rise of 290 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Argentina, the number has risen by 140 percent to 190 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline, but Italy sees the opposite.

By now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 8.7 percent. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.
