Connecticut Sees a Noticeable Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Connecticut went up slightly during the previous 14 days. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 18 percent. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

In Connecticut, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew in the previous 14 days as 21,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks grew by 18 percent. Syspeace blocked 53,000 brute-force attacks in Connecticut. It is the 6th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

For a comparison, there has been a surge of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Arkansas and Washington. With 3,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, Arkansas has witnessed a surge of 19 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Washington, the sum total has increased by 18 percent to 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Up until today, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have declined by 45 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 420,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, 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.

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

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