Slight Growth of Automated Hacking Attempts in Florida Witnessed

The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Florida increased in the course of the previous 14 days. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 16 percent. However, there was a slight contraction of 4 percent in the whole USA.

In Florida, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew slightly in the last fortnight as 2,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 16 percent. Syspeace blocked 30,000 brute-force attacks in Florida.

By way of comparison, Georgia and Arkansas have been under increased attacks. With 440 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Georgia has recorded an increase of 23 percent in comparison with the 14 days prior. In Arkansas, the number has gone up by 14 percent to 4,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Florida is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the USA. There have been 4 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers throughout the previous 14 days compared to the 14 days prior. Up until today, this year there have been 940 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 54 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 360,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics 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.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
