Second Largest Increase of Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA in Maryland

In the course of the 14 days prior, Maryland has seen how the number of automated hacking attempts has soared. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 100 percent in the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In the USA, that’s the second largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a slight decline of 18 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace soared in the 14 days prior in Maryland as 610 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 100 percent. That means 1,300 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Maryland during the two weeks prior were blocked by Syspeace.

Colorado and Georgia have – with similar changes – been under increased attacks. With 82 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Colorado has seen a surge of 260 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Georgia, the number has gone up by 66 percent to 200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Maryland is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. There have been 18 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the 14 days prior compared to the last fortnight. So far, this year there have been 780 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have increased by 67 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 350,000.
