Sweden Witnesses a Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Sweden increased noticeably through the previous 14 days. According to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a surge of 56 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up in the previous 14 days in Sweden as 980 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased noticeably by 56 percent. That means 12,000 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Sweden in the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, for the sake of comparison, a rise of the number of brute-force attacks in China and Romania. With 390 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, China has recorded a rise of 60 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Romania, the number has grown by 50 percent to 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

By now, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 9.4 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
