The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Florida increased slightly throughout the two weeks prior. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 12 percent during the two weeks prior, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In the whole USA, there was a slight escalation of 18 percent.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly during the two weeks prior in Florida as 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts went up slightly by 12 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Florida was 21,000.

Texas and Oregon have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 410 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Texas has recorded a rise of 13 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Oregon, the amount has climbed up by 10 percent to 180 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Florida is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the USA. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shot up by 18 percent in the USA during the last fortnight. By now, this year there have been 810 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has diminished by 48 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 330,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

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

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
