In Sweden, the amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers increased through the two weeks prior in comparison with the past two weeks. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 17 percent. However, there was a slight decline of 14 percent in the whole world.

In Sweden, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased through the two weeks prior as 1,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts grew slightly by 17 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Sweden was 21,000.

For the purpose of comparison, brute-force attacks in Ireland and Colombia have shot up. With 650 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Ireland has witnessed a growth of 21 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Colombia, the number has climbed up by 14 percent to 3,200 automated hacking attempts 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 Sweden sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 14 percent in the world in the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has grown by 74 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,500,000.
