In the world, Italy Witnesses unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

The number is clear — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Italy has increased significantly through the two weeks prior. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 12,000 percent in the last fortnight, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. That’s the greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. At the same time, there was no change in the amount of automated hacking attempts in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers skyrocketed through the last fortnight in Italy as 12,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks escalated by 12,000 percent. That means 34,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Italy through the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace. It is the highest number of automated hacking attempts 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.

There has been, for the sake of comparison, a climb of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Georgia and Sweden. With 310 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Georgia has witnessed an escalation of 110 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Sweden, the sum total has risen by 45 percent to 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been almost stable, but, as said, Italy has growing difficulties. By now, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have decreased by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 970,000.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence 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 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 avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
