Connecticut Aghast by Second Biggest Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in the USA

During the two weeks prior, Connecticut has recorded how the amount of brute-force attacks has soared. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 110 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the USA, that’s the second largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. However, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

In Connecticut, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased extremely through the previous 14-day period as 4,100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks surged by 110 percent. That means 29,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Connecticut during the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace. It is the 9th highest number of automated hacking attempts 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, Massachusetts and Georgia have been under increased attacks. With 1,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Massachusetts has recorded a climb of 170 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Georgia, the sum total has grown by 110 percent to 740 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

By now, this year there have been 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have declined by 9.6 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 920,000.

The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
