Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Belgium

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Belgium have increased greatly through the 14 days prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have grown by 45 percent. However, there was a big fall of 41 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly through the two weeks prior in Belgium as 800 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 45 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Belgium was 24,000.

Argentina and United Arab Emirates have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 95 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Argentina has seen a rise of 62 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In United Arab Emirates, the number has increased by 22 percent to 320 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline all around the world. In other words, Belgium is going against the flow. During the last weeks, there have been 41 percent less brute-force attacks than during the 14 days prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. In the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has risen by 10 percent. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,100,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

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