In Czech Republic, the sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased greatly in the past two weeks in comparison with the last fortnight. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an increase of 36 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In the whole world, there was a slight growth of 13 percent.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace built up in the 14 days prior in Czech Republic as 46 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up by 36 percent. Syspeace blocked 110 automated hacking attempts in Czech Republic.

By way of comparison, Poland and USA have been under increased attacks. With 170 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Poland has recorded a rise of 38 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In USA, the sum total has climbed up by 25 percent to 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase, so Czech Republic is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have gone up by 13 percent in the world during the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 840 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have dropped by 30 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 610,000.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

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