Slight Growth of Automated Hacking Attempts in Massachusetts Recorded

In the previous 14 days, Massachusetts has recorded how the amount of brute-force attacks has increased slightly. Statistics from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have risen by 15 percent. There was a slight increase of 12 percent in the whole USA.

In Massachusetts, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased in the previous 14 days as 250 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks grew by 15 percent. That means 760 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Massachusetts during the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

California and Illinois have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 910 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, California has recorded an escalation of 24 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Illinois, the amount has risen by 10 percent to 130 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight growth all around the USA. That is to say, Massachusetts is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 12 percent more brute-force attacks than through the previous 14-day period in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 44 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 370,000.

The evidence is provided 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 detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks 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 automated hacking attempts.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
