Largest Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Mexico

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Mexico surged during the last fortnight. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 170 percent through the 14 days prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. Such growth in brute-force attacks on Windows servers is unprecedented anywhere else in the world. In contrast, there was a big decline of 30 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased extremely through the past two weeks in Mexico as 220 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased extremely by 170 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Mexico was 520.

For a comparison, there has been a rise of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Netherlands and Uruguay. With 140 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Netherlands has witnessed a rise of 68 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Uruguay, the sum total has shot up by 36 percent to 22 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big drop, but Mexico sees the opposite. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 30 percent less brute-force attacks than during the past two weeks in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 740 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has decreased by 43 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 520,000.

The information is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer 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 right one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
