Slight Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Florida

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Florida have grew through the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 8.6 percent. There was a slight escalation of 12 percent in the whole USA.

In Florida, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased throughout the previous 14 days as 1,700 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 8.6 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Florida was 23,000.

Illinois and Washington have – for the purpose of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 130 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Illinois has recorded a growth of 10 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Washington, the amount has risen by 7.7 percent to 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation, so Florida is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have risen by 12 percent in the USA in the course of the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has declined by 44 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 370,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The evidence is collected by Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for enterprises to fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
