Slight Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Rhode Island

In the course of the last fortnight, Rhode Island has seen how the number of automated hacking attempts has grew. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a rise of 15 percent in brute-force attacks per server. At the same time, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up slightly during the previous 14 days in Rhode Island as 110 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased by 15 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Rhode Island was 110.

For the purpose of comparison, there has been a surge of the number of automated hacking attempts in Washington and Michigan. With 1,400 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Washington has witnessed a surge of 18 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Michigan, the amount has shot up by 14 percent to 790 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost the same, but, as said, Rhode Island has escalating troubles. Up until now, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 45 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 420,000.

The evidence comes from 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 information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An automated hacking attempt 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 keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
