Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Germany

The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Germany went up in the past two weeks. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 30 percent. At the same time, there was a slight decline of 3.4 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably throughout the previous 14 days in Germany as 970 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 30 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Germany was 28,000.

For a comparison, there has been an increase of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Poland and Hungary. With 230 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Poland has seen a surge of 31 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Hungary, the number has grown by 29 percent to 310 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline all around the world. In other words, Germany is going against the flow. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 3.4 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the course of the 14 days prior in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has increased by 7.1 percent. Simply put, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The statistics comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter 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 in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
