The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in USA grew throughout the two weeks prior. Statistics from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 5.3 percent. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 15 percent in the whole world.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased in the course of the 14 days prior in USA as 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 5.3 percent. That means 550,000 total the number of brute-force attacks in the USA during the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

For the sake of comparison, brute-force attacks in Georgia and Czech Republic have increased. With 330 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Georgia has seen a rise of 7.1 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Czech Republic, the number has risen by 5 percent to 44 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

USA is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 15 percent in the world in the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have dropped by 17 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 760,000.
