Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Finland

There’s no denying of facts — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Finland has built up throughout the two weeks prior. According to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a surge of 30 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 11 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 87 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Finland in the course of the previous 14 days. In other words, the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 30 percent. That means 87 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Finland through the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

For the sake of comparison, there has been a surge of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Netherlands and Czech Republic. With 920 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Netherlands has recorded a surge of 33 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Czech Republic, the number has gone up by 29 percent to 2,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop all around the world. That is to say, Finland is going against the flow. In the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less brute-force attacks than in the previous 14-day period in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 5.5 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.
