In Minnesota, the amount has risen by 41 percent to 56 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline, but Maryland sees the opposite. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 32 percent less brute-force attacks than through the last fortnight in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 680 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has diminished by 47 percent.
