In the past two weeks, the amount of automated hacking attempts in Argentina escalated compared to the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 130 percent throughout the previous 14-day period, according to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. Such increase in brute-force attacks on Windows servers is unprecedented anywhere else in the world. However, there was a slight drop of 13 percent in the whole world.

In Argentina, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up through the previous 14 days as 88 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace.

In Italy, the sum total has risen by 45 percent to 210 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Argentina is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. There have been 13 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14 days. By now, this year there have been 1,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has dropped by 7.8 percent. Simply put, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,400,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

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 inspected to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
