There has been, for a comparison, a climb of the number of brute-force attacks in Spain and Argentina. With 290 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Spain has witnessed an increase of 61 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Argentina, the sum total has shot up by 26 percent to 65 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight contraction all around the world. In other words, Hungary is going against the flow. There have been 15 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers throughout the 14 days prior compared to the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have increased by 17 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 760,000.

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