Third Biggest Rise of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Romania

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Romania have escalated through the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 92 percent in the previous 14-day period, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the third greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. Overall, in the world, there was a slight increase of 19 percent.

In Romania, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers soared throughout the previous 14-day period as 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts soared by 92 percent. Syspeace blocked 5,500 brute-force attacks in Romania.

Finland and Spain have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 240 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Finland has recorded a surge of 100 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Spain, the amount has risen by 91 percent to 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Romania is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the world. In the course of the last weeks there have been 19 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the previous 14-day period in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. In the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has risen by 6.1 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,700,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer 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 passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
