Big Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Oregon

In the previous 14 days, the number of brute-force attacks in Oregon built up compared to the 14 days prior. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 21 percent in the course of the last fortnight, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 12 percent in the whole USA.

In Oregon, the sum total of attacks on syspeaces built up in the 14 days prior as 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 21 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Oregon was 5,400. In a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 13th highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

South Carolina and Virginia have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, South Carolina has seen an increase of 33 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Virginia, the amount has climbed up by 19 percent to 870 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on syspeaces have shown a slight decline, but Oregon sees the opposite. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 12 percent less brute-force attacks than in the past two weeks in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 49 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The information is released from 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

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