Third Greatest Growth of Automated Hacking Attempts in the world in Netherlands

The number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Netherlands surged in the course of the two weeks prior. Statistics from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 150 percent. That’s the third biggest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the world. There was a slight growth of 14 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Netherlands in the course of the last fortnight. That means the brute-force attacks escalated by 150 percent. That means 11,000 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Netherlands in the course of the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 9th highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

There has been, for comparison, an increase of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Uruguay and Belgium. With 260 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Uruguay has recorded a surge of 240 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Belgium, the sum total has climbed up by 140 percent to 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Netherlands is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight growth all around the world. During the last weeks there have been 14 percent more brute-force attacks than in the past two weeks in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has increased by 6.6 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,400,000 brute-force attacks in the world.
