New YorkSees Second Largest Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA

Throughout the two weeks prior, the number of brute-force attacks in New York skyrocketed compared to the previous 14-day period. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 210 percent. That’s the second biggest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. However, there was a slight fall of 16 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 3,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in New York in the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts skyrocketed by 210 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in New York was 46,000. Throughout a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Michigan and Pennsylvania have – by means of a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 760 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Michigan has recorded a climb of 480 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Pennsylvania, the amount has climbed up by 110 percent to 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

New York is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the USA. In the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks than through the 14 days prior in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 910 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has declined by 44 percent. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 370,000.
