Alabama Witnesses a Slight Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

The data is out — the amount of automated hacking attempts in Alabama has went up slightly throughout the two weeks prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have climbed up by 10 percent. At the same time, there was no change in the number of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 550 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Alabama during the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts grew by 10 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Alabama was 2,700.

For the sake of comparison, Oregon and New York have been under increased attacks. With 200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Oregon has recorded a surge of 12 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In New York, the sum total has climbed up by 9.7 percent to 2,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Up until now, this year there have been 810 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 52 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 320,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. 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 thoroughly. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
