Slight Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Sweden

In the course of the last fortnight, the number of automated hacking attempts in Sweden increased slightly compared to the past two weeks. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have gone up by 5.9 percent. In contrast, there was a big fall of 35 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew slightly in the course of the previous 14 days in Sweden as 390 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew slightly by 5.9 percent. That means 4,800 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Sweden throughout the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

By means of a comparison, there has been a climb of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Brazil and South Africa. With 110 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Brazil has seen a growth of 14 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In South Africa, the amount has risen by 7.9 percent to 850 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big drop all around the world. Simply put, Sweden is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 35 percent in the world through the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 620 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 35 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 470,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The information is collected by 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 statistics on brute-force attacks 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 automated hacking attempt, 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 correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
