The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight contraction all around the world. In other words, Romania is going against the flow. There have been 19 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace throughout the two weeks prior compared to the previous 14 days. So far, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have declined by 3.2 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.
