Noticeable Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in District of Columbia

During the last fortnight, District of Columbia has recorded how the number of brute-force attacks has grew slightly. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 14 percent throughout the previous 14 days, according to data from syspeaces. However, there was no change in the amount of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

Syspeace registered 3,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in District of Columbia in the two weeks prior. That means the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 14 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in District of Columbia was 3,200. In a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Connecticut and Nebraska have – by way of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 2,900 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Connecticut has witnessed a climb of 15 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Nebraska, the sum total has gone up by 11 percent to 21 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

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

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

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

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