France Sees 11 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in France have increased in the previous 14 days. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 11 percent. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 14 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 880 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in France through the 14 days prior. That means the brute-force attacks increased by 11 percent. That means 21,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the France during the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

Colombia and Uruguay have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 3,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Colombia has seen a surge of 14 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Uruguay, the sum total has gone up by 10 percent to 210 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. That is to say, France is going against the flow. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts than through the past two weeks in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has gone up by 74 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
