Belgium Sees a Slight Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Belgium grew through the previous 14-day period. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an increase of 6.6 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was no change in the number of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 560 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Belgium in the course of the two weeks prior. That means the automated hacking attempts grew slightly by 6.6 percent. Syspeace blocked 19,000 brute-force attacks in Belgium.

In comparison, Mexico and Norway have been under increased attacks. With 310 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Mexico has witnessed an escalation of 7.7 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Norway, the amount has risen by 5 percent to 220 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

By now, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has gone up by 9.8 percent. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 2,000,000.

The evidence is released from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally.
