Largest Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in the USA in Pennsylvania

Through the two weeks prior, Pennsylvania has witnessed how the sum total of brute-force attacks has escalated. According to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 110 percent in brute-force attacks per server. That’s the greatest increase of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was a slight contraction of 12 percent in the whole USA.

In Pennsylvania, the sum total of attacks on syspeaces escalated throughout the 14 days prior as 340 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased significantly by 110 percent. That means 1,800 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Pennsylvania during the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

In comparison, brute-force attacks in District of Columbia and Connecticut have shot up. With 2,600 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, District of Columbia has recorded a climb of 72 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Connecticut, the number has grown by 51 percent to 2,800 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the USA. In other words, Pennsylvania is going against the flow. There have been 12 percent less automated hacking attempts in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the previous 14 days compared to the two weeks prior. Up until today, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has risen by 49 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The information is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global syspeaces conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
