Ireland Aghast by Second Biggest Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in the world

The number is clear — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Ireland has went up throughout the previous 14-day period. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have grown by 73 percent. That’s the second greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. However, there was a big decline of 25 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 480 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Ireland in the past two weeks. That means the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 73 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Ireland was 2,200.

For the purpose of comparison, brute-force attacks in Hungary and Poland have risen. With 410 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Hungary has witnessed an escalation of 110 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Poland, the amount has risen by 59 percent to 120 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Ireland is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 25 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace throughout the last fortnight compared to the past two weeks. Up until today, this year there have been 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has dropped by 43 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 780,000.
