Turkey Aghast by Second Greatest Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

The data is out — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Turkey has surged through the last fortnight. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 160 percent in the two weeks prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight fall of 19 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Turkey in the previous 14-day period. That means the automated hacking attempts increased significantly by 160 percent. That means 2,000 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Turkey in the course of the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace.

Hong Kong and Romania have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 730 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Hong Kong has seen a growth of 500 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Romania, the sum total has grown by 92 percent to 1,600 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. Simply put, Turkey is going against the flow. There have been 19 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the previous 14-day period compared to the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have diminished 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 data comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

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