The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter 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 different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
