Second Greatest Rise of Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA in Ohio

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Ohio soared throughout the previous 14 days. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 100 percent during the past two weeks, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. That’s the second biggest growth of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Ohio, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace shot up in the course of the past two weeks as 520 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts escalated by 100 percent. That means 2,900 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Ohio through the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, with similar changes, a growth of the amount of brute-force attacks in New York and Maine. With 2,400 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, New York has seen an escalation of 480 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Maine, the amount has increased by 68 percent to 630 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost constant, but, as said, Ohio has growing problems. Up until today, this year there have been 900 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Throughout the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 2.9 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 370,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
