14 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Colombia

During the previous 14 days, the amount of automated hacking attempts in Colombia grew compared to the previous 14 days. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a climb of 14 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a slight decrease of 19 percent in the whole world.

In Colombia, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew slightly in the two weeks prior as 3,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 14 percent. Syspeace blocked 44,000 brute-force attacks in Colombia. In the country’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

There has been, by way of comparison, a climb of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Canada and Israel. With 1,900 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Canada has seen an escalation of 19 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Israel, the number has increased by 13 percent to 34 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Colombia is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased by 19 percent in the world throughout the past two weeks. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has diminished by 3.2 percent. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.

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 detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries 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.
