Noticeable Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Germany

In Germany, the sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers grew slightly during the last fortnight in comparison with the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 5.1 percent during the previous 14 days, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. At the same time, there was a slight decrease of 19 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased slightly in the course of the previous 14-day period in Germany as 2,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew slightly by 5.1 percent. That means 77,000 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Germany through the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 3rd highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

In comparison, there has been a climb of the number of automated hacking attempts in Ireland and Norway. With 390 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Ireland has seen a surge of 6.8 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Norway, the amount has gone up by 5 percent to 150 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Germany is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 19 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers throughout the previous 14 days compared to the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have declined by 3.2 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics 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 checked to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
