Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Ohio have increased noticeably in the previous 14-day period. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 24 percent. In the whole USA, there was a slight increase of 8.2 percent.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably in the last fortnight in Ohio as 130 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts built up by 24 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Ohio was 460.

Texas and South Carolina have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Texas has seen a climb of 24 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In South Carolina, the number has shot up by 24 percent to 160 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the USA. Simply put, Ohio is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have risen by 8.2 percent in the USA in the 14 days prior. Up until today, this year there have been 2,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

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