Italy Aghast by Third Largest Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

During the previous 14-day period, Italy has witnessed how the sum total of brute-force attacks has went up. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 45 percent. That’s the third largest increase of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. However, there was a slight contraction of 13 percent in the whole world.

In Italy, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace built up through the previous 14-day period as 210 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 45 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Italy was 420.

By way of comparison, automated hacking attempts in Morocco and Czech Republic have risen. With 240 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Morocco has witnessed a growth of 77 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Czech Republic, the amount has risen by 42 percent to 39 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall all around the world. That is to say, Italy is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 13 percent in the world during the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 7.8 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,400,000.

The data originates from 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 information on brute-force attacks 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.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
