Morocco Witnesses Second Largest Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

The number is clear — the amount of brute-force attacks in Morocco has increased noticeably in the course of the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 53 percent. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 9.6 percent in the whole world.

In Morocco, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly in the course of the previous 14-day period as 130 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts built up by 53 percent. That means 130 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Morocco during the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

For a comparison, Denmark and Mexico have been under increased attacks. With 860 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Denmark has seen a climb of 81 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Mexico, the amount has grown by 25 percent to 120 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall, but Morocco sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have declined by 9.6 percent in the world throughout the 14 days prior. By now, this year there have been 760 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has declined by 32 percent. Simply put, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 520,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

An automated hacking attempt 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 avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
