The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in France went up in the course of the previous 14-day period. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 27 percent. However, there was a slight decline of 14 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly in the course of the last fortnight in France as 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 27 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in France was 28,000.

In comparison, Brazil and China have been under increased attacks. With 280 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, Brazil has witnessed a growth of 30 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In China, the sum total has increased by 21 percent to 260 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. In other words, France is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 14 percent in the world in the course of the past two weeks. By now, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 940,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
