Noticeable Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Georgia

The number is clear — the amount of brute-force attacks in Georgia has increased slightly in the course of the previous 14 days. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have climbed up by 15 percent. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

Syspeace recorded 210 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Georgia through the 14 days prior. In other words, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 15 percent. That means 350 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Georgia in the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

For comparison purposes, there has been an escalation of the number of automated hacking attempts in Washington and Massachusetts. With 2,200 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Washington has recorded an increase of 23 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Massachusetts, the amount has shot up by 15 percent to 210 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Up until today, this year there have been 810 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has decreased by 52 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 320,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally.
