The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Washington grew during the two weeks prior. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an escalation of 15 percent in brute-force attacks per server. Overall, in the USA, there was an escalation of 36 percent.

In Washington, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased slightly in the last fortnight as 3,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 15 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Washington was 18,000.

There has been, for comparison, a rise of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Arkansas and Iowa. With 3,900 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Arkansas has seen a surge of 20 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Iowa, the number has increased by 18 percent to 830 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a great increase, so Washington is not alone with the problem. Throughout the last weeks there have been 36 percent more automated hacking attempts than throughout the previous 14-day period in the USA. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has remained the same. In other words, Syspeace blocked 530,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

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

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