Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Turkey

The data is out — the number of brute-force attacks in Turkey has built up throughout the past two weeks. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 26 percent in the 14 days prior, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. At the same time, there was no change in the amount of automated hacking attempts in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 860 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Turkey through the 14 days prior. That means the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 26 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Turkey was 2,500.

For the sake of comparison, there has been an increase of the amount of brute-force attacks in Netherlands and Morocco. With 930 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Netherlands has recorded a growth of 28 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Morocco, the amount has shot up by 23 percent to 4,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Up until now, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has shot up by 9.8 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 2,000,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
