China Records 34 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts
In the course of the last fortnight, China has seen how the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased noticeably. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 34 percent. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole world.
In China, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up through the two weeks prior as 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks built up by 34 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in China was 2,900.
For a comparison, there has been a surge of the number of automated hacking attempts in Georgia and Lithuania. With 540 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Georgia has seen a climb of 51 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Lithuania, the sum total has climbed up by 26 percent to 320 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.
China is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks than throughout the 14 days prior in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has diminished by 20 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,300,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.
The data source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.
During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
