The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 14 percent during the two weeks prior, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was a slight decrease of 17 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 2,400 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Denmark during the previous 14-day period. That means the automated hacking attempts grew by 14 percent.

In Poland, the sum total has climbed up by 3.6 percent to 180 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop, but Denmark sees the opposite. There have been 17 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace during the two weeks prior compared to the previous 14 days. So far, 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 risen by 8.7 percent. Simply put, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The data source is Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator 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 finally get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
