Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Colombia

The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Colombia increased greatly throughout the 14 days prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 34 percent. There was a slight escalation of 12 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace built up throughout the previous 14 days in Colombia as 4,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks went up by 34 percent. That means 41,000 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Colombia in the course of the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 2nd highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For a comparison, there has been a climb of the number of automated hacking attempts in Ireland and USA. With 1,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Ireland has recorded a climb of 51 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In USA, the sum total has risen by 26 percent to 2,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Colombia is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation all around the world. In the last weeks there have been 12 percent more automated hacking attempts than during the last fortnight in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 8.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,800,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
