Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Romania

In the course of the previous 14-day period, the number of brute-force attacks in Romania went up compared to the two weeks prior. The brute-force attacks have risen by 21 percent in the previous 14 days, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 7.9 percent in the whole world.

In Romania, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly in the course of the past two weeks as 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks built up by 21 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Romania was 7,100.

By way of comparison, there has been a growth of the number of automated hacking attempts in Colombia and Mexico. With 880 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Colombia has witnessed an increase of 21 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Mexico, the amount has increased by 16 percent to 270 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Romania is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 7.9 percent less brute-force attacks than during the previous 14-day period in the world. So far, this year there have been 960 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have grown by 22 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 750,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
