Colombia Sees a Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

In Colombia, the number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers went up in the course of the two weeks prior compared to the previous 14-day period. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an increase of 21 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a slight decrease of 7.9 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly in the two weeks prior in Colombia as 880 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 21 percent. Syspeace blocked 6,900 brute-force attacks in Colombia.

By way of comparison, Lithuania and Romania have been under increased attacks. With 470 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Lithuania has seen an increase of 28 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Romania, the sum total has grown by 21 percent to 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but Colombia sees the opposite. There have been 7.9 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace through the last fortnight compared to the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 960 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 22 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 750,000.

The information is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

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

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