In the world, Hungary Records unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Hungary have soared in the two weeks prior. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a growth of 340 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the world, that’s the largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. However, there was a slight decrease of 14 percent in the whole world.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace escalated in the previous 14 days in Hungary as 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts skyrocketed by 340 percent. Syspeace blocked 4,200 brute-force attacks in Hungary.

For comparison purposes, automated hacking attempts in Australia and USA have gone up. With 1,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Australia has recorded a climb of 150 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In USA, the sum total has increased by 56 percent to 1,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but Hungary sees the opposite. In the last weeks, there have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the previous 14 days in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 940,000.

The statistics comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
