Nebraska Sees a Steep Increase of Automated Hacking Attempts

The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Nebraska increased significantly through the past two weeks. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 91 percent throughout the previous 14 days, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. Overall, in the USA, there was an escalation of 67 percent.

In Nebraska, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace shot up in the previous 14 days as 400 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks soared by 91 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Nebraska was 1,000. In the state’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

There has been, by way of comparison, a rise of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Virginia and Iowa. With 13,000 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Virginia has seen a growth of 94 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Iowa, the number has climbed up by 78 percent to 2,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown an escalation, so Nebraska is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have grown by 67 percent in the USA through the previous 14-day period. So far, this year there have been 3,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. In the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has increased by 2.7 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,900,000.

The evidence 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 track down and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global innovator 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 eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
