Third Largest Rise of Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA in South Carolina

The data is out — the sum total of brute-force attacks in South Carolina has increased significantly in the course of the 14 days prior. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 120 percent. In the USA, that’s the third greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a big fall of 53 percent in the whole USA.

In South Carolina, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace skyrocketed in the past two weeks as 240 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks skyrocketed by 120 percent. That means 540 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the South Carolina during the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, in comparison, an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Maine and Nebraska. With 380 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Maine has recorded a surge of 180 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Nebraska, the sum total has shot up by 22 percent to 670 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big decline all around the USA. That is to say, South Carolina is going against the flow. In the last weeks, there have been 53 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the 14 days prior in the USA. Up until today, this year there have been 890 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has gone up by 3.6 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 410,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.
