Second Greatest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in the USA in Colorado

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Colorado have soared in the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 280 percent in the past two weeks, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the USA, that’s the second greatest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a big decrease of 24 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace registered 190 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Colorado during the previous 14-day period. That means the automated hacking attempts surged by 280 percent. Syspeace blocked 290 automated hacking attempts in Colorado.

Maine and Oregon have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Maine has seen an increase of 920 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Oregon, the amount has grown by 130 percent to 510 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Colorado is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the USA. There have been 24 percent less automated hacking attempts in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace during the 14 days prior compared to the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have diminished by 21 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 670,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

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

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