California Witnesses a Big Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

The report doesn’t lie — the amount of automated hacking attempts in California has went up during the two weeks prior. Statistics from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have gone up by 23 percent. In the whole USA, there was a slight escalation of 14 percent.

Syspeace documented 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in California in the last fortnight. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 23 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in California was 87,000.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Oregon and Virginia. With 1,300 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Oregon has recorded a growth of 44 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Virginia, the number has shot up by 20 percent to 690 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation, so California is not alone with the problem. In the last weeks there have been 14 percent more brute-force attacks than in the 14 days prior in the USA. So far, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has shot up by 54 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 780,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses 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 syspeaces 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 checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
