Egypt Witnesses a Big Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

In Egypt, the amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers went up in the two weeks prior in comparison with the previous 14-day period. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 28 percent. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 3.4 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 2,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Egypt in the course of the last fortnight. That means the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 28 percent. That means 4,200 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Egypt during the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace. In the country’s measured history, this is the 14th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

In comparison, Denmark and Switzerland have been under increased attacks. With 3,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Denmark has witnessed an increase of 28 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Switzerland, the amount has gone up by 24 percent to 340 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decrease all around the world. In other words, Egypt is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 3.4 percent in the world throughout the last fortnight. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have increased by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,300,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data 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 different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

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