Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Brazil

Throughout the previous 14 days, Brazil has witnessed how the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased greatly. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have grown by 30 percent. At the same time, there was a slight fall of 14 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace built up through the past two weeks in Brazil as 280 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks built up by 30 percent. That means 2,800 total the number of automated hacking attempts in the Brazil throughout the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

For comparison purposes, Lithuania and France have been under increased attacks. With 550 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Lithuania has recorded a surge of 35 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In France, the sum total has climbed up by 27 percent to 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Brazil 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 14 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 940,000.

The statistics comes 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 find and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
