Biggest Rise of Brute-Force Attacks in the USA in Arizona

The number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Arizona soared in the previous 14 days. The brute-force attacks have grown by 530 percent in the course of the previous 14-day period, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the largest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. There was a slight increase of 14 percent in the whole USA.

In Arizona, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased significantly throughout the previous 14-day period as 3,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts soared by 530 percent. Syspeace blocked 17,000 automated hacking attempts in Arizona. It is the 6th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

Illinois and Minnesota have – by way of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 1,400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Illinois has recorded a growth of 160 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Minnesota, the sum total has climbed up by 150 percent to 30 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on syspeaces have shown a slight increase, so Arizona is not alone with the problem. There have been 14 percent more brute-force attacks in the USA on syspeaces in the in the course of the last fortnight compared to the past two weeks. So far, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. In the course of the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased by 54 percent. Simply put, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 780,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
