Finland Witnesses 9.2 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

During the two weeks prior, the sum total of brute-force attacks in Finland increased compared to the previous 14 days. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have grown by 9.2 percent. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 15 percent in the whole world.

In Finland, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased throughout the 14 days prior as 130 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts grew by 9.2 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Finland was 130.

For the purpose of comparison, brute-force attacks in Mexico and Georgia have shot up. With 230 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Mexico has seen an increase of 19 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Georgia, the number has shot up by 7.1 percent to 330 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. Simply put, Finland is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 15 percent in the world during the two weeks prior. Up until today, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 17 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 760,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The evidence originates from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
