Pennsylvania Aghast by Second Largest Rise in Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA

There’s no denying of facts — the number of brute-force attacks in Pennsylvania has surged in the previous 14 days. According to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a rise of 200 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the second largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. However, there was no change in the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Pennsylvania, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased extremely during the previous 14-day period as 600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 200 percent. Syspeace blocked 2,900 automated hacking attempts in Pennsylvania.

Maine and Nevada have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 2,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Maine has seen an escalation of 1,900 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Nevada, the amount has climbed up by 120 percent to 52 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on syspeaces have been almost constant, but, as said, Pennsylvania has growing difficulties. So far, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has grown by 55 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,100,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The statistics is collected 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 tracks all the global syspeaces carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
