Indonesia Witnesses 56 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

The number is clear — the number of automated hacking attempts in Indonesia has increased greatly through the previous 14-day period. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 56 percent. However, there was a slight decrease of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Indonesia, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up during the past two weeks as 39 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 56 percent. Syspeace blocked 48 brute-force attacks in Indonesia.

With similar changes, brute-force attacks in Iceland and Italy have risen. With 1,000 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Iceland has recorded a rise of 61 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Italy, the sum total has shot up by 52 percent to 3,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline all around the world. Simply put, Indonesia is going against the flow. During the last weeks, there have been 19 percent less automated hacking attempts than throughout the 14 days prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have declined by 14 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,200,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics 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.

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

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
