Mexico Records a Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Mexico have increased greatly during the previous 14 days. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 28 percent. In the whole world, there was a noticeable growth of 23 percent.

The number of attacks on syspeaces increased greatly throughout the last fortnight in Mexico as 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 28 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,700 automated hacking attempts in Mexico. It is the 2nd highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For a comparison, there has been a surge of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Brazil and Hungary. With 200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Brazil has recorded an escalation of 30 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Hungary, the sum total has grown by 28 percent to 850 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown an escalation, so Mexico is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 23 percent more brute-force attacks than in the course of the two weeks prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has shot up by 31 percent. Simply put, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises 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 trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
