5.9 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in North Carolina

In the two weeks prior, the number of brute-force attacks in North Carolina increased compared to the 14 days prior. According to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 5.9 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was no change in the number of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

In North Carolina, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly in the course of the previous 14 days as 510 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 5.9 percent. Syspeace blocked 6,200 automated hacking attempts in North Carolina.

Nebraska and Maryland have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 21 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Nebraska has witnessed an increase of 11 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Maryland, the amount has shot up by 2.5 percent to 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been unchanged, but, as said, North Carolina has growing problems. By now, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 55 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,100,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

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