54 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Missouri

There’s no denying of facts — the number of automated hacking attempts in Missouri has built up throughout the previous 14 days. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a growth of 54 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was a slight drop of 3.2 percent in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly in the course of the two weeks prior in Missouri as 140 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 54 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Missouri was 280. It is the 5th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For the sake of comparison, automated hacking attempts in Rhode Island and Virginia have grown. With 520 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Rhode Island has seen a rise of 56 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Virginia, the sum total has risen by 33 percent to 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but Missouri sees the opposite. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 3.2 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the course of the last fortnight in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has declined by 11 percent. In other words, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.

The information comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks 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 automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
