Australia Records a Noticeable Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

During the previous 14-day period, Australia has recorded how the amount of brute-force attacks has grew. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 5.3 percent in brute-force attacks per server. At the same time, there was a big decrease of 23 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly throughout the 14 days prior in Australia as 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. Simply put, the brute-force attacks grew slightly by 5.3 percent. Syspeace blocked 56,000 automated hacking attempts in Australia.

There has been, in comparison, a rise of the number of brute-force attacks in Egypt and France. With 1,500 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Egypt has recorded a growth of 18 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In France, the sum total has shot up by 9.2 percent to 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline, but Australia sees the opposite. In the last weeks, there have been 23 percent less automated hacking attempts than throughout the 14 days prior in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has grown by 9.3 percent. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 860,000.

The evidence is collected by Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for enterprises to fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
