Finland Aghast by Third Biggest Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in the world

In the course of the two weeks prior, Finland has recorded how the number of automated hacking attempts has increased significantly. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an increase of 180 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the third greatest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. In contrast, there was a big decline of 35 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 360 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Finland throughout the previous 14-day period. That means the brute-force attacks soared by 180 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Finland was 360. In the country’s measured history, this is the 12th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

There has been, for a comparison, a surge of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Argentina and France. With 190 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Argentina has recorded a surge of 260 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In France, the number has increased by 70 percent to 620 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big decrease all around the world. That is to say, Finland is going against the flow.
