Largest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Switzerland

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Switzerland have surged through the 14 days prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 170 percent. Such growth in automated hacking attempts on Windows servers is unprecedented anywhere else in the world. Overall, in the world, there was a slight escalation of 16 percent.

In Switzerland, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased extremely through the last fortnight as 800 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 170 percent. That means 1,800 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Switzerland during the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 4th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period in the country\’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, a surge of the number of automated hacking attempts in China and Netherlands. With 310 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, China has seen a rise of 100 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Netherlands, the sum total has gone up by 95 percent to 330 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Switzerland is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have gone up by 16 percent in the world through the past two weeks. Up until today, this year there have been 720 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 40 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 540,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data originates 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 detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

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

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
