The report doesn’t lie — the number of automated hacking attempts in Michigan has increased slightly throughout the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have increased by 9.6 percent in the past two weeks, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a big decrease of 25 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 750 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Michigan through the last fortnight. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 9.6 percent. That means 2,100 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Michigan during the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

Maryland and Arizona have – with similar changes – been under increased attacks. With 760 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Maryland has seen an increase of 20 percent compared to the previous 14-day period. In Arizona, the sum total has climbed up by 5 percent to 430 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. There have been 25 percent less automated hacking attempts in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace throughout the 14 days prior compared to the past two weeks. Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have risen by 47 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 500,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.
