Big Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Arkansas

In the course of the two weeks prior, Arkansas has witnessed how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has went up. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have shot up by 36 percent. In contrast, there was a slight decline of 11 percent in the whole USA.

In Arkansas, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly in the two weeks prior as 4,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. Simply put, the brute-force attacks went up by 36 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Arkansas was 4,200.

Ohio and Oregon have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 110 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Ohio has seen a growth of 52 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Oregon, the number has increased by 34 percent to 530 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Arkansas is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 11 percent in the USA throughout the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. That is on the same level as the same period last year. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 750,000.
