In Hungary, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew slightly in the course of the two weeks prior as 540 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts grew slightly by 14 percent. That means 2,300 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Hungary through the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

For comparison, Australia and Lithuania have been under increased attacks. With 2,500 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Australia has witnessed a surge of 17 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Lithuania, the sum total has shot up by 7.3 percent to 680 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase, so Hungary is not alone with the problem. In the last weeks there have been 19 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the past two weeks in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has gone up by 6.1 percent. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,700,000.

The information originates from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
