Spain Sees 140 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the two weeks prior, Spain has recorded how the number of brute-force attacks has soared. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 140 percent in the past two weeks, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. At the same time, there was a slight decrease of 7.9 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 700 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Spain through the two weeks prior. That means the brute-force attacks increased extremely by 140 percent. Syspeace blocked 8,900 brute-force attacks in Spain.

By means of a comparison, Turkey and Sweden have been under increased attacks. With 740 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Turkey has recorded a surge of 190 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Sweden, the number has increased by 110 percent to 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight contraction, but Spain sees the opposite. There have been 7.9 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the 14 days prior compared to the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 960 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have dropped by 22 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 750,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
