Florida Witnesses 7.5 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Florida increased throughout the last fortnight. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 7.5 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the whole USA, there was a slight increase of 5.3 percent.

In Florida, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly throughout the past two weeks as 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased by 7.5 percent. Syspeace blocked 30,000 brute-force attacks in Florida.

By way of comparison, there has been an increase of the amount of brute-force attacks in Texas and Michigan. With 550 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Texas has witnessed an escalation of 7.7 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Michigan, the amount has climbed up by 6.9 percent to 480 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation, so Florida is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have gone up by 5.3 percent in the USA through the past two weeks. By now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. During the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has grown by 5.1 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 710,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

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