Spain Sees a Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Spain went up through the last fortnight. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a rise of 35 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. There was a slight increase of 14 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up during the previous 14-day period in Spain as 810 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 35 percent. Syspeace blocked 13,000 brute-force attacks in Spain.

For comparison, brute-force attacks in Mexico and United Arab Emirates have risen. With 1,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Mexico has recorded an increase of 38 percent compared to the past two weeks. In United Arab Emirates, the sum total has climbed up by 31 percent to 220 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase, so Spain is not alone with the problem. In the course of the last weeks there have been 14 percent more brute-force attacks than in the course of the previous 14 days in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. During the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has shot up by 6.6 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,400,000 brute-force attacks in the world.
