Denmark Sees a Slight Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

The report doesn’t lie — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Denmark has increased slightly during the two weeks prior. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a rise of 5 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was a big fall of 22 percent in the whole world.

In Denmark, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased slightly during the 14 days prior as 460 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up slightly by 5 percent. Syspeace blocked 12,000 brute-force attacks in Denmark.

With similar changes, brute-force attacks in Brazil and Finland have climbed up. With 190 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Brazil has recorded a rise of 9.2 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Finland, the amount has gone up by 4.7 percent to 200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Denmark is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 22 percent in the world in the course of the two weeks prior. Up until now, this year there have been 740 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 27 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 530,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The information originates from 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 track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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 checked to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
