Noticeable Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in Brazil Witnessed

Through the two weeks prior, Brazil has witnessed how the sum total of brute-force attacks has grew slightly. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 11 percent in the course of the previous 14 days, according to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was no change in the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased slightly through the previous 14-day period in Brazil as 310 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased slightly by 11 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Brazil was 4,100.

Germany and Ireland have – by way of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Germany has witnessed a rise of 12 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Ireland, the number has shot up by 9 percent to 610 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has diminished by 14 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 970,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

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