Rhode Island Sees a Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The report doesn’t lie — the amount of brute-force attacks in Rhode Island has built up through the last fortnight. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 28 percent in the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. Overall, in the USA, there was a slight escalation of 8.2 percent.

In Rhode Island, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up during the 14 days prior as 140 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 28 percent. Syspeace blocked 440 automated hacking attempts in Rhode Island.

For the sake of comparison, automated hacking attempts in Arizona and Texas have climbed up. With 740 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Arizona has seen an escalation of 28 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Texas, the amount has increased by 24 percent to 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight growth all around the USA. Simply put, Rhode Island is not alone with the problem. In the course of the last weeks there have been 8.2 percent more brute-force attacks than throughout the last fortnight in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 2,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has dropped by 11 percent. In other words, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.
