Noticeable Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in Florida Documented

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Florida have increased in the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 6.9 percent during the two weeks prior, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 11 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 2,500 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Florida in the two weeks prior. That means the automated hacking attempts increased slightly by 6.9 percent. That means 43,000 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Florida in the course of the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, for comparison, an escalation of the number of automated hacking attempts in Rhode Island and Kentucky. With 160 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Rhode Island has recorded an increase of 9.1 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Kentucky, the number has increased by 4.9 percent to 100 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline all around the USA. Simply put, Florida is going against the flow. In the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less automated hacking attempts than throughout the 14 days prior in the USA. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. That is on the same level as the same period last year. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 750,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
