Slight Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in USA

In the course of the past two weeks, USA has recorded how the number of brute-force attacks has went up slightly. The brute-force attacks have increased by 5.5 percent in the course of the two weeks prior, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a slight fall of 3 percent in the whole world.

In USA, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased in the course of the previous 14 days as 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased by 5.5 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in USA.

With similar changes, automated hacking attempts in Czech Republic and Belgium have climbed up. With 1,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Czech Republic has seen a surge of 9 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Belgium, the amount has increased by 5.1 percent to 1,600 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

USA is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. In the last weeks, there have been 3 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the previous 14 days in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 5.9 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
