Steep Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Oregon

The data is out — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Oregon has soared throughout the two weeks prior. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a growth of 85 percent in brute-force attacks per server. At the same time, there was a slight decline of 8.7 percent in the whole USA.

In Oregon, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace escalated in the 14 days prior as 290 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts soared by 85 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Oregon was 2,600.

For the purpose of comparison, automated hacking attempts in New Jersey and New York have grown. With 180 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, New Jersey has seen an escalation of 110 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In New York, the number has gone up by 79 percent to 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline, but Oregon sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have diminished by 8.7 percent in the USA in the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has dropped by 43 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 430,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks 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.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
