Extreme Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Belgium

In the course of the 14 days prior, Belgium has seen how the amount of automated hacking attempts has surged. Statistics from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have climbed up by 140 percent. In the whole world, there was a slight escalation of 14 percent.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased extremely during the previous 14 days in Belgium as 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks escalated by 140 percent. That means 43,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Belgium in the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

Netherlands and Denmark have – for the purpose of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,500 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Netherlands has recorded an escalation of 150 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Denmark, the number has climbed up by 97 percent to 6,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation all around the world. In other words, Belgium is not alone with the problem. There have been 14 percent more brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the throughout the last fortnight compared to the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 6.6 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,400,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

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 inspected 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 excellent customer support.
