Brazil in the world Sees Second Largest Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts
Throughout the past two weeks, Brazil has seen how the amount of automated hacking attempts has soared. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 320 percent through the previous 14 days, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the world, that’s the second largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. In the whole world, there was a slight escalation of 14 percent.
In Brazil, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace surged during the past two weeks as 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks surged by 320 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Brazil was 16,000. In the country’s measured history, this is the 4th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.
In comparison, China and Denmark have been under increased attacks. With 1,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, China has recorded a growth of 360 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Denmark, the amount has climbed up by 180 percent to 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.
The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase all around the world. In other words, Brazil is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 14 percent more brute-force attacks than throughout the previous 14 days in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have declined by 18 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,300,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.
The information is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.
An automated hacking attempt 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 avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
