Noticeable Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in Maryland Witnessed

Throughout the two weeks prior, Maryland has recorded how the number of brute-force attacks has increased. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 14 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a slight contraction of 12 percent in the whole USA.

In Maryland, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew in the 14 days prior as 2,500 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased slightly by 14 percent. Syspeace blocked 65,000 brute-force attacks in Maryland. In the state’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

For comparison, Rhode Island and Indiana have been under increased attacks. With 970 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Rhode Island has seen a growth of 17 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Indiana, the amount has shot up by 10 percent to 170 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Maryland is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on syspeaces have decreased all around the USA. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 12 percent in the USA during the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 2,000 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 49 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global syspeaces meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts.

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

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