Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Washington

In Washington, the sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased greatly throughout the past two weeks in comparison with the two weeks prior. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a growth of 23 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up in the course of the last fortnight in Washington as 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 23 percent. That means 11,000 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Washington in the course of the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

There has been, for comparison, a surge of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Minnesota and Georgia. With 60 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Minnesota has witnessed an escalation of 24 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Georgia, the number has shot up by 15 percent to 210 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been almost stable, but, as said, Washington has rising problems. So far, this year there have been 810 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 52 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 320,000.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

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