Mexico Witnesses a Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

During the two weeks prior, Mexico has witnessed how the sum total of brute-force attacks has built up. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have climbed up by 30 percent. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 13 percent in the whole world.

In Mexico, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly in the course of the previous 14 days as 290 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 30 percent. Syspeace blocked 460 automated hacking attempts in Mexico.

There has been, for comparison purposes, an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Lithuania and Belgium. With 450 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Lithuania has seen an escalation of 30 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Belgium, the number has climbed up by 28 percent to 8,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight contraction, but Mexico sees the opposite. There have been 13 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace throughout the previous 14 days compared to the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 7.8 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,400,000.

The evidence source is Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, 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 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 keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
