Mississippi Witnesses an Extreme Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up in the two weeks prior in Mississippi as 150 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts surged by 98 percent. That means 540 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Mississippi during the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 15th 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.

By means of a comparison, brute-force attacks in Nevada and Indiana have climbed up. With 83 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Nevada has witnessed an increase of 170 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Indiana, the amount has grown by 32 percent to 210 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Mississippi is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have diminished by 39 percent in the USA in the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has declined by 2.6 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 900,000.

The information is collected 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.

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