Hungary Aghast by Second Biggest Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Hungary have escalated in the course of the two weeks prior. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 380 percent. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 18 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased significantly through the previous 14 days in Hungary as 2,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks shot up by 380 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Hungary was 6,200. In the country’s measured history, this is the 4th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

For the sake of comparison, Zimbabwe and Italy have been under increased attacks. With 2,700 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Zimbabwe has recorded a surge of 400 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Italy, the amount has shot up by 220 percent to 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Hungary is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. There have been 18 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on syspeaces in the course of the last fortnight compared to the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. During the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has grown by 46 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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 systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
