ChinaWitnesses Second Biggest Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in China have increased significantly through the past two weeks. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an escalation of 130 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. At the same time, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

In China, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased significantly throughout the past two weeks as 490 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts escalated by 130 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in China was 630.

By way of comparison, there has been a surge of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Georgia and South Africa. With 430 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Georgia has seen an increase of 230 percent compared to the last fortnight. In South Africa, the sum total has risen by 93 percent to 3,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost stable, but, as said, China has growing troubles. So far, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has grown by 9.8 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 2,000,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data 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 different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
