9.2 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in France

In the course of the previous 14-day period, the amount of automated hacking attempts in France increased slightly compared to the previous 14-day period. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an escalation of 9.2 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a big fall of 23 percent in the whole world.

In France, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly in the 14 days prior as 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks grew by 9.2 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in France was 32,000.

For comparison, Egypt and Australia have been under increased attacks. With 1,500 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Egypt has witnessed an increase of 18 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Australia, the amount has increased by 5.3 percent to 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big drop, but France sees the opposite. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 23 percent less automated hacking attempts than through the last fortnight in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have increased by 9.3 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 860,000.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts 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 automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
