Throughout the last weeks, there have been 17 percent less brute-force attacks than through the past two weeks in the world. By now, 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 automated hacking attempts has increased by 8.7 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,300,000.
