Germany Records 34 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

In the two weeks prior, Germany has recorded how the amount of brute-force attacks has went up. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 34 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. At the same time, there was a big decline of 35 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 1,600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Germany throughout the last fortnight. In other words, the brute-force attacks went up by 34 percent. Syspeace blocked 44,000 brute-force attacks in Germany.

Canada and Australia have – by way of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 290 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Canada has recorded a surge of 46 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Australia, the amount has grown by 27 percent to 610 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Germany 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 Windows servers secured by Syspeace through the previous 14 days compared to the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 620 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 35 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 470,000.

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

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally 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 safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
