Automated Hacking Attempts Go up Significantly in Poland

The number is clear — the number of brute-force attacks in Poland has increased noticeably in the two weeks prior. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 48 percent. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole world.

Syspeace logged 190 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Poland during the last fortnight. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 48 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Poland was 330.

By means of a comparison, Hungary and Uruguay have been under increased attacks. With 440 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Hungary has recorded an escalation of 72 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Uruguay, the number has increased by 37 percent to 140 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost the same, but, as said, Poland has increasing problems. So far, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. During the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has risen by 9.8 percent. Simply put, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 2,000,000.
