Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Norway

The report doesn’t lie — the amount of brute-force attacks in Norway has went up throughout the past two weeks. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 39 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a slight contraction of 17 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 150 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Norway throughout the two weeks prior. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 39 percent. That means 1,300 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Norway throughout the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

With similar changes, brute-force attacks in United Kingdom and Ireland have increased. With 1,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, United Kingdom has witnessed a rise of 39 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Ireland, the number has risen by 35 percent to 370 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Norway is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. In the last weeks, there have been 17 percent less brute-force attacks than in the course of the 14 days prior in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 8.7 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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