Big Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Hungary

During the past two weeks, Hungary has witnessed how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has went up. The brute-force attacks have risen by 58 percent throughout the past two weeks, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a big decline of 35 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace documented 310 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Hungary in the course of the past two weeks. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 58 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,100 automated hacking attempts in Hungary.

By means of a comparison, brute-force attacks in France and Netherlands have risen. With 620 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, France has seen a surge of 70 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Netherlands, the number has increased by 47 percent to 120 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Hungary is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 35 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the previous 14-day period compared to the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 620 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 35 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 470,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
