In the world, Belgium Sees unprecedented Brute-Force Attacks

During the previous 14-day period, the sum total of brute-force attacks in Belgium escalated compared to the last fortnight. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an escalation of 830 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the world, that’s the biggest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In the whole world, there was an escalation of 57 percent.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers soared in the two weeks prior in Belgium as 18,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks soared by 830 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Belgium was 580,000. In a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Uruguay and Netherlands have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 190 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Uruguay has seen a rise of 400 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Netherlands, the amount has climbed up by 110 percent to 2,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big increase all around the world. In other words, Belgium is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 57 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the previous 14-day period in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 2,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. In the course of the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 10 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,900,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer 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 passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
