Colombia Aghast by Second Greatest Rise in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Colombia increased noticeably in the course of the last fortnight. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a growth of 57 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the second biggest growth of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the world. In the whole world, there was an escalation of 33 percent.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly in the previous 14-day period in Colombia as 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 57 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Colombia was 13,000.

There has been, with similar changes, a climb of the amount of brute-force attacks in Belgium and Spain. With 4,000 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Belgium has recorded a surge of 1,300 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Spain, the amount has grown by 54 percent to 270 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Colombia is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown an escalation all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have risen by 33 percent in the world throughout the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 960 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have declined by 43 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 670,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, 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 ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
