In the USA, that’s the third greatest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In contrast, there was a big drop of 23 percent in the whole USA.

In Nevada, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably throughout the previous 14-day period as 150 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace.

In the state’s measured history, this is the highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.

There has been, in comparison, an increase of the number of automated hacking attempts in Nebraska and Rhode Island. With 59 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Nebraska has seen a rise of 110 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Rhode Island, the number has increased by 37 percent to 250 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

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