Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in France

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in France increased greatly during the 14 days prior. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 56 percent. However, there was a big decline of 25 percent in the whole world.

In France, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly during the two weeks prior as 720 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks increased noticeably by 56 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in France was 16,000.

By way of comparison, there has been an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Poland and Czech Republic. With 120 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Poland has recorded a climb of 59 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Czech Republic, the sum total has shot up by 40 percent to 39 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

France is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 25 percent in the world throughout the previous 14-day period. Up until today, this year there have been 1,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have diminished by 43 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 780,000.

The data comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
