Alabama Witnesses a Big Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

In the course of the previous 14-day period, Alabama has seen how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has increased noticeably. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 21 percent in the course of the past two weeks, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. There was a noticeable growth of 26 percent in the whole USA.

In Alabama, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably in the course of the last fortnight as 670 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 21 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Alabama was 3,000.

For the sake of comparison, there has been an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Rhode Island and Kentucky. With 120 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Rhode Island has recorded a growth of 22 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Kentucky, the number has grown by 20 percent to 130 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big increase, so Alabama is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 26 percent more automated hacking attempts than in the previous 14 days in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has dropped by 56 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 370,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The evidence originates from 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 information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter 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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

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