Slight Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Israel

In the course of the previous 14 days, the number of automated hacking attempts in Israel grew slightly compared to the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 4 percent through the past two weeks, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 7.9 percent in the whole world.

In Israel, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly throughout the last fortnight as 26 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts grew by 4 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Israel was 26.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, a surge of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Germany and United Arab Emirates. With 850 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Germany has witnessed a rise of 4.5 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In United Arab Emirates, the number has shot up by 3 percent to 270 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Israel 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 in the 14 days prior in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 960 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has diminished by 22 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 750,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
