Alabama Witnesses a Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Alabama have went up during the last fortnight. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 30 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the whole USA, there was a slight growth of 5 percent.

In Alabama, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly during the two weeks prior as 7,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 30 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Alabama was 40,000. It is the 5th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

Arkansas and Nevada have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 7,500 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Arkansas has recorded a climb of 30 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Nevada, the amount has climbed up by 21 percent to 35 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on syspeaces have shown a slight escalation, so Alabama is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have gone up by 5 percent in the USA throughout the past two weeks. So far, this year there have been 1,300 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has grown by 67 percent. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 730,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global syspeaces meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
