9.2 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Brazil

The number is clear — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Brazil has went up slightly through the two weeks prior. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 9.2 percent during the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In contrast, there was a big fall of 22 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly during the previous 14 days in Brazil as 190 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 9.2 percent. That means 1,600 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Brazil in the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

For a comparison, Australia and Denmark have been under increased attacks. With 480 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Australia has witnessed a growth of 9.5 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Denmark, the number has shot up by 5 percent to 460 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline all around the world. That is to say, Brazil is going against the flow. During the last weeks, there have been 22 percent less automated hacking attempts than through the 14 days prior in the world. So far, this year there have been 740 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have diminished by 27 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 530,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The information is provided by 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 detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
