Australia Aghast by Second Greatest Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in the world

The data is out — the number of automated hacking attempts in Australia has increased greatly through the 14 days prior. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 36 percent. In the world, that’s the second biggest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 14 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased noticeably in the previous 14-day period in Australia as 11,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 36 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Australia was 330,000. It is the 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 the sake of comparison, an increase of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Romania and China. With 610 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Romania has witnessed an escalation of 310 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In China, the number has shot up by 33 percent to 310 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall, but Australia sees the opposite. There have been 14 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers during the 14 days prior compared to the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have risen by 74 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information 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 automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
