In the USA, Michigan Sees Third Biggest Growth of Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the last fortnight, the number of brute-force attacks in Michigan escalated compared to the 14 days prior. The brute-force attacks have grown by 100 percent throughout the two weeks prior, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. That’s the third biggest growth of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. Overall, in the USA, there was a slight escalation of 18 percent.

In Michigan, the sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased extremely through the previous 14 days as 930 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased significantly by 100 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Michigan was 3,700.

There has been, for comparison purposes, a rise of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Nevada and Utah. With 360 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Nevada has recorded a climb of 150 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Utah, the amount has grown by 70 percent to 990 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight growth all around the USA. In other words, Michigan is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have grown by 18 percent in the USA in the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 810 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The brute-force attacks have diminished by 48 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 330,000.

The information is provided by 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 monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
