In Alabama, the number has increased by 20 percent to 7,400 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight growth, so Maine is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 15 percent more automated hacking attempts than throughout the past two weeks in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 4.6 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 770,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
