In the world, Spain Records unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

The data is out — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Spain has increased greatly throughout the two weeks prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 61 percent. In the world, that’s the biggest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight decline of 15 percent in the whole world.

In Spain, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up in the past two weeks as 290 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 61 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Spain was 4,000.

For the sake of comparison, Hungary and Argentina have been under increased attacks. With 270 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, Hungary has seen an increase of 34 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Argentina, the number has risen by 26 percent to 65 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Spain is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. During the last weeks, there have been 15 percent less brute-force attacks than through the previous 14-day period in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has declined by 17 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 760,000.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
