Utah Records an Extreme Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Utah have soared through the two weeks prior. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 87 percent. However, there was a big decrease of 24 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace registered 690 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Utah in the course of the two weeks prior. That means the brute-force attacks soared by 87 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,200 automated hacking attempts in Utah.

For the purpose of comparison, there has been an escalation of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Nebraska and Illinois. With 110 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Nebraska has witnessed a surge of 91 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Illinois, the sum total has risen by 48 percent to 210 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big fall all around the USA. In other words, Utah is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 24 percent in the USA throughout the previous 14 days. Up until now, this year there have been 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has declined by 21 percent. That is to say, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 670,000.

The data is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies 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 thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer 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 checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
