In the USA, Massachusetts Sees Third Greatest Increase of Automated Hacking Attempts

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Massachusetts have increased noticeably in the course of the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 46 percent during the two weeks prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. That’s the third largest growth of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. At the same time, there was a big decrease of 21 percent in the whole USA.

In Massachusetts, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up in the past two weeks as 280 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 46 percent. Syspeace blocked 750 automated hacking attempts in Massachusetts.

For comparison purposes, there has been a growth of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Michigan and South Carolina. With 440 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Michigan has recorded a surge of 54 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In South Carolina, the number has climbed up by 32 percent to 70 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Massachusetts is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the USA. During the last weeks, there have been 21 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the course of the previous 14-day period in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 8 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 620,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
