In the USA, Pennsylvania Sees unprecedented Brute-Force Attacks

In the 14 days prior, the number of automated hacking attempts in Pennsylvania shot up compared to the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 370 percent during the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the largest growth of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. In the whole USA, there was a big increase of 24 percent.

Syspeace recorded 2,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Pennsylvania through the 14 days prior. That means the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 370 percent. That means 18,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Pennsylvania in the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace. In a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 5th highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

There has been, by means of a comparison, a surge of the number of automated hacking attempts in Illinois and Kentucky. With 1,200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Illinois has recorded a climb of 120 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Kentucky, the sum total has gone up by 120 percent to 390 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a noticeable growth, so Pennsylvania is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have increased by 24 percent in the USA throughout the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 2,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 34 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,400,000.

The evidence comes 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 detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

An automated hacking attempt 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 safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
