Big Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Belgium

The data is out — the number of brute-force attacks in Belgium has increased greatly throughout the previous 14-day period. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 26 percent. However, there was a big fall of 35 percent in the whole world.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly in the last fortnight in Belgium as 230 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 26 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Belgium was 9,600.

Romania and Spain have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Romania has recorded a climb of 27 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Spain, the sum total has climbed up by 24 percent to 210 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Belgium 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 35 percent in the world in the two weeks prior. Up until now, this year there have been 620 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have grown by 35 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 470,000.

The statistics originates 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 track down and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack 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 systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
