Big Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Germany
In the course of the past two weeks, the amount of automated hacking attempts in Germany built up compared to the previous 14-day period. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 20 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 14 percent in the whole world.
The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased noticeably during the last fortnight in Germany as 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 20 percent. Syspeace blocked 28,000 automated hacking attempts in Germany.
For comparison purposes, there has been an increase of the amount of automated hacking attempts in United Kingdom and Australia. With 1,000 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, United Kingdom has recorded an escalation of 28 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Australia, the amount has climbed up by 14 percent to 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.
All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop, but Germany sees the opposite. There have been 14 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the previous 14 days compared to the two weeks prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has dropped by 7.1 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.
The data originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information 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.
During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
