In Ohio, the number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers went up slightly through the last fortnight compared to the last fortnight. According to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 8.8 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew in the course of the previous 14-day period in Ohio as 100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 8.8 percent. Syspeace blocked 330 automated hacking attempts in Ohio.

For the purpose of comparison, there has been a growth of the amount of brute-force attacks in Indiana and Illinois. With 210 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Indiana has seen an escalation of 13 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Illinois, the amount has shot up by 9 percent to 210 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Up until today, 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 sum total of brute-force attacks has dropped by 9.6 percent. In other words, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 920,000.
