Oregon Aghast by Third Largest Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Oregon have escalated in the course of the two weeks prior. According to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 130 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the third greatest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. At the same time, there was a big decline of 24 percent in the whole USA.

In Oregon, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers soared in the course of the past two weeks as 510 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts escalated by 130 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,100 brute-force attacks in Oregon.

There has been, for comparison, a climb of the number of automated hacking attempts in Colorado and New York. With 190 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Colorado has witnessed a surge of 280 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In New York, the number has increased by 110 percent to 490 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline, but Oregon sees the opposite. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 24 percent less brute-force attacks than in the last fortnight in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 1,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has decreased by 21 percent. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 670,000.

The data source is Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data 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 brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

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