Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Illinois

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Illinois have built up in the two weeks prior. The brute-force attacks have risen by 55 percent during the previous 14 days, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. At the same time, there was a slight decline of 18 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace registered 150 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Illinois throughout the previous 14-day period. That means the brute-force attacks went up by 55 percent. That means 1,100 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Illinois throughout the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

Georgia and Kentucky have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Georgia has recorded a surge of 66 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Kentucky, the amount has grown by 48 percent to 120 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Illinois is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. During the last weeks, there have been 18 percent less automated hacking attempts than in the previous 14 days in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 780 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have decreased by 67 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 350,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
