Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Czech Republic

The data is out — the number of brute-force attacks in Czech Republic has built up in the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 24 percent through the past two weeks, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. There was a noticeable growth of 47 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased noticeably in the course of the previous 14-day period in Czech Republic as 40 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts built up by 24 percent. That means 120 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Czech Republic throughout the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, with similar changes, a climb of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Germany and Ireland. With 1,500 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Germany has recorded a climb of 29 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Ireland, the number has increased by 22 percent to 410 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown an escalation, so Czech Republic is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 47 percent more automated hacking attempts than in the previous 14 days in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 9.3 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,100,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global pioneer 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 finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
