Indiana Witnesses an Extreme Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the two weeks prior, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Indiana surged compared to the previous 14 days. According to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 86 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was a slight drop of 16 percent in the whole USA.

In Indiana, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased extremely throughout the past two weeks as 340 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts escalated by 86 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Indiana was 800.

Pennsylvania and Iowa have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,300 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Pennsylvania has seen an escalation of 110 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Iowa, the amount has increased by 70 percent to 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Indiana is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks than through the past two weeks in the USA. By now, this year there have been 910 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 44 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 370,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The information is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
