Second Largest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks in the USA in Georgia

The report doesn’t lie — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Georgia has skyrocketed in the course of the last fortnight. Data from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have increased by 130 percent. That’s the second biggest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. However, there was a slight decrease of 11 percent in the whole USA.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers escalated throughout the last fortnight in Georgia as 440 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased significantly by 130 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,700 brute-force attacks in Georgia.

For the purpose of comparison, there has been an escalation of the number of brute-force attacks in New Jersey and Iowa. With 1,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, New Jersey has witnessed a rise of 250 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Iowa, the number has increased by 78 percent to 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall, but Georgia sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 11 percent in the USA in the previous 14 days. By now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. In the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has remained unchanged. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 750,000.

The statistics is released 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 find and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
