Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Indiana

In the past two weeks, Indiana has recorded how the amount of brute-force attacks has increased greatly. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 33 percent through the past two weeks, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a big drop of 25 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up through the last fortnight in Indiana as 3,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 33 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Indiana was 12,000. It is the 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.

There has been, for a comparison, an increase of the number of automated hacking attempts in Massachusetts and Maryland. With 530 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Massachusetts has recorded an increase of 66 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Maryland, the amount has grown by 20 percent to 760 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big drop, but Indiana sees the opposite. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 25 percent less brute-force attacks than during the last fortnight in the USA. So far, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has declined by 47 percent. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 500,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects 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 protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
