Colombia Witnesses a Slight Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Colombia have went up slightly in the course of the previous 14 days. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a rise of 14 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 14 percent in the whole world.

In Colombia, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew slightly in the course of the previous 14 days as 3,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 14 percent. That means 36,000 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Colombia throughout the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace. During a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 9th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

For a comparison, there has been a surge of the number of brute-force attacks in Sweden and France. With 1,900 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Sweden has recorded an escalation of 17 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In France, the number has increased by 11 percent to 880 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Colombia is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. There have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers during the previous 14 days compared to the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has grown by 74 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data is collected by 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 detect and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
