For the sake of comparison, Uruguay and Spain have been under increased attacks. With 190 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, Uruguay has seen an escalation of 400 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Spain, the number has climbed up by 100 percent to 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a noticeable growth, so Netherlands is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 57 percent more brute-force attacks than in the 14 days prior in the world.
