In the world, Israel Records unprecedented Brute-Force Attacks

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Israel have increased significantly through the previous 14-day period. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 1,300 percent during the two weeks prior, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the greatest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. In contrast, there was a big decrease of 22 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 360 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Israel through the previous 14 days. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts shot up by 1,300 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Israel was 360. It is the 5th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

With similar changes, there has been a growth of the amount of automated hacking attempts in China and Netherlands. With 270 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, China has seen a rise of 730 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Netherlands, the sum total has grown by 140 percent to 140 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Israel is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 22 percent in the world through the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 740 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have diminished by 27 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 530,000.

The statistics comes 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 monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. 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 different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

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