United Kingdom Sees a Slight Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

Through the 14 days prior, United Kingdom has seen how the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased slightly. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a climb of 3.7 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was a slight fall of 19 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 1,700 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in United Kingdom during the previous 14-day period. That means the brute-force attacks increased by 3.7 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in United Kingdom was 80,000.

For the sake of comparison, there has been a surge of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Germany and Norway. With 2,900 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Germany has recorded a growth of 5.1 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Norway, the sum total has shot up by 5 percent to 150 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

United Kingdom is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. There have been 19 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace through the previous 14 days compared to the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,400 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 diminished by 3.2 percent. In other words, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data 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 correct one.

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