Texas Aghast by Third Biggest Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA

The amount of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Texas went up during the last fortnight. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was an increase of 49 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the third biggest growth of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly during the previous 14 days in Texas as 400 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 49 percent. Syspeace blocked 7,200 brute-force attacks in Texas.

For comparison, Oregon and Nebraska have been under increased attacks. With 220 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, Oregon has seen an escalation of 83 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Nebraska, the number has climbed up by 45 percent to 73 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

So far, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has dropped by 45 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 420,000.
