The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Canada increased slightly throughout the last fortnight. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 5.6 percent. Overall, in the world, there was a noticeable growth of 48 percent.
In Canada, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased throughout the past two weeks as 270 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 5.6 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Canada was 8,200.
There has been, for a comparison, a rise of the number of automated hacking attempts in United Kingdom and Italy. With 340 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, United Kingdom has seen a surge of 11 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Italy, the number has gone up by 5.4 percent to 550 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.
The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a noticeable growth all around the world. Simply put, Canada is not alone with the problem. There have been 48 percent more brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the throughout the previous 14-day period compared to the past two weeks. Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 43 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,100,000.
The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.
During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
