Lithuania Sees a Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks
During the previous 14-day period, Lithuania has seen how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has increased noticeably. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 27 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the whole world, there was a slight increase of 3.9 percent.
In Lithuania, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly throughout the last fortnight as 340 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts went up by 27 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Lithuania was 340.
Switzerland and Italy have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 220 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Switzerland has recorded a growth of 29 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Italy, the number has shot up by 27 percent to 2,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.
All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation, so Lithuania is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 3.9 percent more automated hacking attempts than throughout the two weeks prior in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 6.9 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,500,000.
The information originates from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for companies to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.
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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
