Noticeable Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in Uruguay Witnessed

There’s no denying of facts — the number of brute-force attacks in Uruguay has grew during the past two weeks. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a rise of 10 percent in brute-force attacks per server. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 14 percent in the whole world.

In Uruguay, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly in the past two weeks as 210 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 10 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Uruguay was 1,400. In the country’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

For comparison purposes, there has been a surge of the number of automated hacking attempts in France and Brazil. With 880 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, France has seen an escalation of 11 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Brazil, the number has climbed up by 4.9 percent to 230 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall all around the world. That is to say, Uruguay is going against the flow. There have been 14 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace throughout the 14 days prior compared to the previous 14-day period. So far, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. In the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has risen by 74 percent. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.

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

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
