29 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Hungary

Throughout the last fortnight, Hungary has recorded how the amount of brute-force attacks has built up. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 29 percent during the past two weeks, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a slight decline of 3.4 percent in the whole world.

In Hungary, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up through the 14 days prior as 310 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 29 percent. That means 1,100 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Hungary in the course of the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

For a comparison, brute-force attacks in Germany and Denmark have shot up. With 970 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Germany has recorded a surge of 30 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Denmark, the amount has grown by 28 percent to 3,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Hungary is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 3.4 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14-day period. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. During the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has grown by 7.1 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,300,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
