Whopping Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Mississippi

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Mississippi have soared in the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 82 percent throughout the past two weeks, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. Overall, in the USA, there was a noticeable growth of 52 percent.

Syspeace recorded 700 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Mississippi in the past two weeks. That is to say, the brute-force attacks skyrocketed by 82 percent. That means 2,400 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Mississippi during the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. In the state’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

There has been, for a comparison, an increase of the amount of automated hacking attempts in New Jersey and West Virginia. With 2,300 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, New Jersey has recorded a climb of 95 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In West Virginia, the number has climbed up by 78 percent to 14,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown an escalation all around the USA. In other words, Mississippi is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have increased by 52 percent in the USA in the course of the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 1.3 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,100,000.

The evidence source is 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 tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
