Noticeable Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Brazil

In the course of the last fortnight, Brazil has witnessed how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has went up slightly. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 4.9 percent in the course of the previous 14 days, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was a slight decrease of 14 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased slightly in the previous 14-day period in Brazil as 230 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks grew by 4.9 percent. Syspeace blocked 2,400 brute-force attacks in Brazil.

With similar changes, there has been an increase of the number of brute-force attacks in Uruguay and Czech Republic. With 210 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Uruguay has witnessed an increase of 10 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Czech Republic, the sum total has gone up by 4.6 percent to 27 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop, but Brazil sees the opposite. There have been 14 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace through the two weeks prior compared to the previous 14-day period. Up until today, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 74 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,500,000.

The information is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
