Noticeable Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Canada

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Canada have increased in the course of the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have grown by 4.4 percent in the course of the previous 14-day period, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was a slight drop of 3.4 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 1,100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Canada during the last fortnight. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 4.4 percent. That means 36,000 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Canada in the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace.

By means of a comparison, automated hacking attempts in Turkey and Lithuania have increased. With 610 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Turkey has recorded an escalation of 7.5 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Lithuania, the sum total has shot up by 2.1 percent to 630 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop all around the world. Simply put, Canada is going against the flow. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 3.4 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the two weeks prior in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 7.1 percent. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,300,000.

The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
