Oregon Witnesses 22 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

There’s no denying of facts — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Oregon has built up in the course of the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have increased by 22 percent in the last fortnight, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was no change in the amount of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Oregon, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers built up in the course of the previous 14-day period as 200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts built up by 22 percent. That means 2,000 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Oregon during the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

In comparison, automated hacking attempts in New Jersey and Connecticut have increased. With 3,300 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, New Jersey has witnessed a climb of 22 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Connecticut, the sum total has risen by 21 percent to 3,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

So far, this year there have been 900 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has increased by 2.9 percent. In other words, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.
