Denmark Sees 25 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Denmark have increased noticeably in the course of the last fortnight. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have climbed up by 25 percent. However, there was a big drop of 30 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 750 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Denmark in the past two weeks. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 25 percent. That means 19,000 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Denmark throughout the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

With similar changes, Romania and Czech Republic have been under increased attacks. With 1,000 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Romania has witnessed a climb of 27 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Czech Republic, the number has increased by 8.2 percent to 42 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decrease all around the world. That is to say, Denmark is going against the flow. In the last weeks, there have been 30 percent less brute-force attacks than through the previous 14-day period in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 740 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has dropped by 43 percent. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 520,000.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

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