Third Greatest Rise of Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA in Iowa

In Iowa, the sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers skyrocketed in the course of the past two weeks in comparison with the previous 14 days. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 190 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the third largest growth of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was a big drop of 39 percent in the whole USA.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up during the two weeks prior in Iowa as 3,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts soared by 190 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Iowa was 59,000.

There has been, by way of comparison, an increase of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Nebraska and Nevada. With 75 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Nebraska has recorded a climb of 190 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Nevada, the number has increased by 170 percent to 83 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline, but Iowa sees the opposite. In the last weeks, there have been 39 percent less brute-force attacks than through the past two weeks in the USA. So far, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The brute-force attacks have increased by 2.6 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 900,000.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects 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 outstanding customer support.
