Automated Hacking Attempts Go up Significantly in Netherlands

The number is clear — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Netherlands has built up in the course of the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 28 percent throughout the 14 days prior, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up through the previous 14-day period in Netherlands as 930 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 28 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Netherlands was 5,900.

There has been, with similar changes, a surge of the number of brute-force attacks in Switzerland and Turkey. With 760 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Switzerland has witnessed a growth of 29 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Turkey, the amount has grown by 26 percent to 860 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost stable, but, as said, Netherlands has escalating difficulties. Up until now, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has increased by 9.8 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 2,000,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator 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 finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
