Nebraska Sees a Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

The report doesn\’t lie — the sum total of brute-force attacks in Nebraska has increased noticeably throughout the past two weeks. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 34 percent in the previous 14 days, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Nebraska, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up in the past two weeks as 140 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up by 34 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Nebraska was 550.

There has been, for the purpose of comparison, an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Arkansas and Arizona. With 5,400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14-day period, Arkansas has recorded a climb of 37 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Arizona, the number has gone up by 25 percent to 250 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been unchanged, but, as said, Nebraska has rising problems. Up until now, this year there have been 810 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has decreased by 52 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 320,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The information is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator 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 in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
