Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Morocco

In Morocco, the amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers increased noticeably in the course of the previous 14 days in comparison with the 14 days prior. The brute-force attacks have increased by 46 percent throughout the two weeks prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a big drop of 23 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up through the last fortnight in Morocco as 4,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts went up by 46 percent. Syspeace blocked 4,900 automated hacking attempts in Morocco. In the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

Turkey and Mexico have – by way of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,400 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Turkey has witnessed an escalation of 47 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Mexico, the sum total has gone up by 43 percent to 280 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Morocco is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 23 percent less brute-force attacks than throughout the past two weeks in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 9.3 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 860,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

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 right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
