Colorado Sees a Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The data is out — the number of automated hacking attempts in Colorado has increased greatly throughout the past two weeks. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 31 percent in the previous 14-day period, according to evidence from syspeaces. However, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on syspeaces increased noticeably in the course of the two weeks prior in Colorado as 200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks built up by 31 percent. Syspeace blocked 350 automated hacking attempts in Colorado.

For comparison, Florida and Connecticut have been under increased attacks. With 3,800 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Florida has seen a climb of 40 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Connecticut, the amount has risen by 15 percent to 2,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Up until today, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 55 percent. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,100,000.

The evidence source is Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
