Slight Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Finland

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Finland have increased in the course of the two weeks prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 13 percent. In contrast, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 120 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Finland in the course of the two weeks prior. That means the brute-force attacks grew slightly by 13 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Finland was 120.

For comparison, Morocco and Czech Republic have been under increased attacks. With 130 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Morocco has recorded a climb of 20 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Czech Republic, the amount has grown by 12 percent to 42 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been almost the same, but, as said, Finland has rising difficulties. So far, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have declined by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 970,000.

The data comes from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for enterprises to fight automated hacking attempts.
