Noticeable Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Canada

The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Canada increased slightly during the previous 14 days. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have climbed up by 19 percent. In contrast, there was a slight fall of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Canada, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased through the last fortnight as 1,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 19 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Canada was 51,000. In the country’s measured history, this is the 8th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

With similar changes, there has been a growth of the number of automated hacking attempts in Denmark and Colombia. With 3,900 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Denmark has witnessed an escalation of 28 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Colombia, the sum total has shot up by 14 percent to 3,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decrease all around the world. In other words, Canada is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 19 percent in the world in the course of the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 3.2 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The evidence is collected by 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 tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
