Noticeable Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Mississippi

The number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Mississippi increased in the course of the two weeks prior. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have shot up by 11 percent. In contrast, there was a big fall of 22 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 380 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Mississippi in the course of the two weeks prior. In other words, the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 11 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,300 brute-force attacks in Mississippi. In the state’s measured history, this is the 8th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

With similar changes, automated hacking attempts in Oregon and California have grown. With 1,900 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Oregon has recorded a rise of 17 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In California, the sum total has increased by 11 percent to 1,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Mississippi is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 22 percent less brute-force attacks than through the previous 14 days in the USA. By now, this year there have been 950 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Throughout the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has showed no change. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 420,000.

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

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
