The number is clear — the number of automated hacking attempts in South Carolina has grew in the past two weeks.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight drop, but South Carolina sees the opposite. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 3.2 percent less brute-force attacks than during the two weeks prior in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.
