Whopping Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Connecticut

In Connecticut, the number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers shot up through the last fortnight compared to the past two weeks. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 120 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was no change in the amount of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Connecticut, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers skyrocketed throughout the 14 days prior as 9,600 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 120 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Connecticut was 85,000. Throughout 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.

By way of comparison, Massachusetts and New York have been under increased attacks. With 550 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Massachusetts has recorded an increase of 210 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In New York, the sum total has increased by 86 percent to 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Up until today, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
