Oregon Records Second Greatest Rise in Brute-Force Attacks in the USA

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Oregon have shot up during the previous 14-day period. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have increased by 83 percent. In the USA, that’s the second greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. At the same time, there was no change in the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Oregon, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased extremely in the previous 14-day period as 220 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 83 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Oregon was 1,600.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, an escalation of the amount of automated hacking attempts in New Jersey and Texas. With 760 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, New Jersey has witnessed an increase of 330 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Texas, the number has climbed up by 49 percent to 400 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been unchanged, but, as said, Oregon has increasing difficulties. Up until 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 decreased by 45 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 420,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The information is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

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