Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Kentucky

In the past two weeks, Kentucky has recorded how the number of automated hacking attempts has increased noticeably. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a rise of 37 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up during the last fortnight in Kentucky as 50 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up by 37 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Kentucky was 100.

Arizona and Georgia have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 310 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Arizona has seen a surge of 47 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Georgia, the number has shot up by 36 percent to 85 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

By now, this year there have been 900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has shot up by 2.9 percent. Simply put, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
