Norway Sees 5 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

Throughout the last fortnight, Norway has witnessed how the number of automated hacking attempts has grew slightly. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have climbed up by 5 percent. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Norway, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased in the previous 14-day period as 150 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 5 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Norway was 1,000.

By means of a comparison, brute-force attacks in Germany and United Kingdom have climbed up. With 2,900 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Germany has witnessed an escalation of 5.1 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In United Kingdom, the amount has climbed up by 3.7 percent to 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. In other words, Norway is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have declined by 19 percent in the world in the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 3.2 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

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

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
