Brazil Witnesses 15 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

During the two weeks prior, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Brazil increased compared to the last fortnight. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 15 percent. Overall, in the world, there was a slight increase of 14 percent.

In Brazil, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly in the course of the last fortnight as 320 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks grew by 15 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,500 brute-force attacks in Brazil.

With similar changes, brute-force attacks in Egypt and Sweden have grown. With 2,800 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Egypt has seen a rise of 17 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Sweden, the number has climbed up by 15 percent to 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight growth all around the world. Simply put, Brazil is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shot up by 14 percent in the world throughout the previous 14-day period. Up until today, this year there have been 1,600 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has grown by 6.6 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,400,000.

The information 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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 checked to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
