According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 16 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the third biggest growth of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. At the same time, there was a big decrease of 61 percent in the whole USA.

In Washington, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly in the past two weeks as 6,300 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace.

In West Virginia, the sum total has climbed up by 10 percent to 5,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big decline all around the USA. That is to say, Washington is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 61 percent in the USA through the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has risen by 10 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 850,000.
