In Canada, the number has climbed up by 25 percent to 270 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight contraction all around the world. That is to say, Argentina is going against the flow. There have been 15 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers throughout the past two weeks compared to 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 brute-force attacks have dropped by 17 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 760,000.
