Automated Hacking Attempts Go up Significantly in Australia

In the past two weeks, the number of automated hacking attempts in Australia increased noticeably compared to the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have risen by 38 percent through the past two weeks, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was no change in the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the whole world.

In Australia, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably in the course of the two weeks prior as 2,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up by 38 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Australia was 67,000. In a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 12th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

For the purpose of comparison, automated hacking attempts in Denmark and Israel have grown. With 1,800 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Denmark has recorded an escalation of 44 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Israel, the amount has grown by 38 percent to 33 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been almost the same, but, as said, Australia has escalating troubles. Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has decreased by 14 percent. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 970,000.

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

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

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
