Florida Records a Big Increase in Brute-Force Attacks
The number is clear — the number of automated hacking attempts in Florida has went up during the previous 14 days. Evidence from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 40 percent. However, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.
The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace went up in the course of the 14 days prior in Florida as 3,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 40 percent. Syspeace blocked 39,000 brute-force attacks in Florida. During a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 6th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.
In comparison, there has been an increase of the number of brute-force attacks in Virginia and Colorado. With 1,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Virginia has witnessed a climb of 41 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Colorado, the number has increased by 31 percent to 200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.
All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on syspeaces have been almost the same, but, as said, Florida has rising problems. Up until now, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has grown by 55 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,100,000.
The evidence is provided by 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 track down and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.
During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.
To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
