Massachusetts Aghast by Third Biggest Rise in Brute-Force Attacks in the USA

In the course of the previous 14 days, Massachusetts has witnessed how the number of automated hacking attempts has shot up. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a growth of 210 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the third biggest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was no change in the amount of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up in the course of the previous 14 days in Massachusetts as 550 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks escalated by 210 percent. Syspeace blocked 630 automated hacking attempts in Massachusetts.

There has been, in comparison, a growth of the amount of brute-force attacks in District of Columbia and Connecticut. With 1,800 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, District of Columbia has witnessed an increase of 300 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Connecticut, the number has climbed up by 120 percent to 9,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Up until today, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has declined by 11 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The statistics comes from 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 find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically checks 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 excellent customer support.
