The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Texas grew in the course of the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have climbed up by 5.6 percent. At the same time, there was a slight drop of 12 percent in the whole USA.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased in the past two weeks in Texas as 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks grew slightly by 5.6 percent. Syspeace blocked 36,000 automated hacking attempts in Texas.

By means of a comparison, there has been an escalation of the number of brute-force attacks in Florida and Nebraska. With 2,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14 days, Florida has seen a climb of 5.8 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Nebraska, the number has gone up by 3.9 percent to 20 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight contraction all around the USA. Simply put, Texas is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on syspeaces have diminished by 12 percent in the USA in the course of the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. In the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has risen by 49 percent. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.
