Big Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Australia

The sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Australia increased greatly during the two weeks prior. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 21 percent in the course of the 14 days prior, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. There was a slight growth of 12 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 3,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Australia in the previous 14 days. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 21 percent. Syspeace blocked 110,000 automated hacking attempts in Australia. During a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

For a comparison, there has been a rise of the amount of automated hacking attempts in USA and France. With 2,500 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, USA has seen a surge of 26 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In France, the sum total has risen by 21 percent to 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the world. That is to say, Australia is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shot up by 12 percent in the world in the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have increased by 8.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,800,000.
