During the 14 days prior, Egypt has seen how the amount of automated hacking attempts has went up. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 69 percent. However, there was a slight fall of 16 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up in the previous 14 days in Egypt as 2,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 69 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Egypt was 3,000. Throughout a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 10th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

France and Georgia have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, France has witnessed a growth of 100 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Georgia, the amount has risen by 51 percent to 540 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Egypt is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have dropped by 16 percent in the world throughout the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 20 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,300,000.
