Steep Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Texas

In the course of the two weeks prior, Texas has seen how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has skyrocketed. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 95 percent during the previous 14-day period, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. There was a slight increase of 15 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Texas in the course of the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts shot up by 95 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Texas was 27,000.

There has been, in comparison, a surge of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Iowa and West Virginia. With 1,200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Iowa has witnessed a surge of 96 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In West Virginia, the amount has climbed up by 85 percent to 9,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation, so Texas is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have grown by 15 percent in the USA in the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. In the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased by 4.6 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 770,000.
