Third Greatest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in the world in Australia

In the previous 14 days, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Australia increased greatly compared to the past two weeks. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 47 percent. That’s the third biggest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. In the whole world, there was a slight escalation of 20 percent.

In Australia, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up in the 14 days prior as 440 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 47 percent. Syspeace blocked 12,000 automated hacking attempts in Australia.

For the sake of comparison, brute-force attacks in Mexico and Spain have climbed up. With 220 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Mexico has recorded a growth of 59 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Spain, the sum total has risen by 35 percent to 320 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Australia is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the world. There have been 20 percent more automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the throughout the last fortnight compared to the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 880 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 43 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 650,000.

The evidence source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
