In the USA, Massachusetts Witnesses unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Massachusetts increased extremely in the course of the last fortnight. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 100 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the USA, that’s the greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a big drop of 22 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace shot up in the course of the two weeks prior in Massachusetts as 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 100 percent. Syspeace blocked 4,700 brute-force attacks in Massachusetts. It is the 7th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For a comparison, Georgia and Arizona have been under increased attacks. With 120 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Georgia has seen an escalation of 60 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Arizona, the number has grown by 21 percent to 260 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decrease all around the USA. That is to say, Massachusetts is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 22 percent in the USA during the 14 days prior. By now, this year there have been 950 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. In the course of the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has remained the same. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 420,000.
