40 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Oregon

The data is out — the number of automated hacking attempts in Oregon has went up during the previous 14 days. The brute-force attacks have risen by 40 percent during the previous 14 days, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. There was a slight increase of 5 percent in the whole USA.

In Oregon, the amount of attacks on syspeaces built up in the course of the previous 14 days as 1,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 40 percent. That means 4,400 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Oregon throughout the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace. In a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 14th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

There has been, by way of comparison, an increase of the amount of brute-force attacks in Virginia and Arkansas. With 640 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Virginia has seen a rise of 43 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Arkansas, the sum total has risen by 30 percent to 7,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase all around the USA. That is to say, Oregon is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on syspeaces have risen by 5 percent in the USA through the previous 14 days. Up until now, this year there have been 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. In the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has shot up by 67 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 730,000.
