Slight Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Michigan

There’s no denying of facts — the number of automated hacking attempts in Michigan has increased slightly in the course of the previous 14-day period. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 18 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was a big drop of 22 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace recorded 740 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Michigan in the course of the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts increased slightly by 18 percent. Syspeace blocked 3,000 brute-force attacks in Michigan.

For comparison purposes, automated hacking attempts in Washington and Maine have climbed up. With 4,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Washington has recorded an increase of 19 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Maine, the sum total has grown by 18 percent to 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decrease, but Michigan sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have dropped by 22 percent in the USA during the previous 14 days. Up until now, this year there have been 950 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has showed no change. In other words, Syspeace blocked 420,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The information 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 tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data 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 inspected to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
