45 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Nevada

The data is out — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Nevada has increased greatly in the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 45 percent during the last fortnight, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the whole USA, there was a slight growth of 8.2 percent.

Syspeace recorded 280 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Nevada throughout the two weeks prior. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 45 percent. Syspeace blocked 460 automated hacking attempts in Nevada. During a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

There has been, in comparison, an escalation of the amount of brute-force attacks in Virginia and Utah. With 1,500 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Virginia has seen a rise of 46 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Utah, the number has increased by 38 percent to 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation, so Nevada is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shot up by 8.2 percent in the USA in the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 2,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have grown by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.

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

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

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