In Argentina, the sum total has grown by 32 percent to 250 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall, but Spain sees the opposite. There have been 3.4 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14 days. By now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,300,000 brute-force attacks in the world.
