Spain Witnesses a Big Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

The data is out — the number of automated hacking attempts in Spain has built up in the two weeks prior. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 23 percent. Overall, in the world, there was a slight increase of 16 percent.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up in the course of the two weeks prior in Spain as 170 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 23 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Spain was 2,700.

For a comparison, automated hacking attempts in Belgium and Colombia have risen. With 280 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Belgium has seen a surge of 29 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Colombia, the amount has climbed up by 22 percent to 930 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the world. That is to say, Spain is not alone with the problem. There have been 16 percent more automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the throughout the two weeks prior compared to the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 720 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 40 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 540,000.

The evidence is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence 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 correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
