China Witnesses a Big Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

Throughout the previous 14-day period, China has witnessed how the amount of brute-force attacks has increased noticeably. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 21 percent through the two weeks prior, according to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a slight fall of 14 percent in the whole world.

In China, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up in the course of the last fortnight as 260 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 21 percent. Syspeace blocked 450 brute-force attacks in China.

France and Finland have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, France has seen an increase of 27 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Finland, the sum total has risen by 20 percent to 100 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decrease all around the world. Simply put, China is going against the flow. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the course of the past two weeks in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 940,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
