In Colombia, the number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased noticeably in the course of the past two weeks in comparison with the 14 days prior. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 27 percent in the course of the last fortnight, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a slight decrease of 16 percent in the whole world.

In Colombia, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up in the previous 14-day period as 3,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts went up by 27 percent. That means 39,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Colombia in the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 5th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

With similar changes, Switzerland and New Zealand have been under increased attacks. With 450 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Switzerland has recorded an increase of 35 percent compared to the past two weeks. In New Zealand, the number has grown by 22 percent to 16,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight contraction all around the world. In other words, Colombia is going against the flow. There have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace during the 14 days prior compared to the two weeks prior. Up until now, this year there have been 2,500 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 climbed up by 9.4 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 2,200,000.

The information source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
