In the USA, Maine Witnesses unprecedented Brute-Force Attacks

The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Maine soared throughout the two weeks prior. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 920 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the largest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was a big fall of 24 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers soared in the last fortnight in Maine as 1,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts skyrocketed by 920 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Maine was 1,300.

There has been, by means of a comparison, a rise of the number of brute-force attacks in Colorado and Oregon. With 190 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Colorado has seen a growth of 280 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Oregon, the sum total has shot up by 130 percent to 510 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Maine is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. There have been 24 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the previous 14-day period compared to the two weeks prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 21 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 670,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

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