Egypt Sees 12 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the previous 14 days, Egypt has seen how the amount of automated hacking attempts has increased. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 12 percent during the previous 14-day period, according to statistics from syspeaces. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 18 percent in the whole world.

In Egypt, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew during the two weeks prior as 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 12 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Egypt was 3,400. In the country’s measured history, this is the 14th highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

In comparison, there has been a rise of the number of brute-force attacks in South Africa and Australia. With 400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, South Africa has recorded a surge of 13 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Australia, the sum total has risen by 10 percent to 1,300 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decrease, but Egypt sees the opposite. There have been 18 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on syspeaces in the course of the previous 14-day period compared to the 14 days prior. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has gone up by 46 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

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

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