Australia Aghast by Second Greatest Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in the world

There’s no denying of facts — the number of brute-force attacks in Australia has soared throughout the previous 14-day period. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have shot up by 150 percent. That’s the second greatest increase of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. In contrast, there was a slight decline of 14 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 1,600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Australia through the past two weeks. That is to say, the brute-force attacks escalated by 150 percent. That means 50,000 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Australia in the course of the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

For a comparison, there has been a rise of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Hungary and USA. With 1,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, Hungary has witnessed a surge of 340 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In USA, the number has shot up by 56 percent to 1,300 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight contraction all around the world. Simply put, Australia is going against the flow. During the last weeks, there have been 14 percent less brute-force attacks than in the 14 days prior in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have grown by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 940,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
