Maryland Records 34 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

The number is clear — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Maryland has went up through the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have increased by 34 percent throughout the previous 14 days, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In the whole USA, there was a great increase of 24 percent.

In Maryland, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably in the previous 14 days as 3,400 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 34 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Maryland was 85,000. It is the 2nd highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

There has been, for comparison, an escalation of the number of automated hacking attempts in West Virginia and Florida. With 3,300 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, West Virginia has witnessed a growth of 42 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Florida, the amount has grown by 33 percent to 5,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Maryland is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown an escalation all around the USA. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have grown by 24 percent in the USA in the past two weeks. Up until today, this year there have been 2,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. In the course of the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has risen by 34 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,400,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

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