Biggest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Italy

In Italy, the sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers increased significantly in the course of the previous 14 days compared to the last fortnight. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a growth of 110 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. Such rise in automated hacking attempts on Windows servers is unprecedented anywhere else in the world. In contrast, there was a big drop of 23 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up in the last fortnight in Italy as 590 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased extremely by 110 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Italy was 1,100.

Argentina and Belgium have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 180 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Argentina has recorded a rise of 90 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Belgium, the sum total has gone up by 85 percent to 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big fall, but Italy sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have dropped by 23 percent in the world through the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 9.3 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 860,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

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

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally 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 businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
