In Maine, the number has risen by 35 percent to 230 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

California is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight growth all around the USA. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have increased by 15 percent in the USA in the previous 14 days. By now, this year there have been 1,600 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA.
