In the course of the two weeks prior, the sum total of brute-force attacks in Minnesota increased noticeably compared to the two weeks prior.

In Minnesota, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased greatly in the course of the last fortnight as 48 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 30 percent. Syspeace blocked 140 brute-force attacks in Minnesota. In the state’s measured history, this is the 9th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

There has been, for the sake of comparison, a rise of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Virginia and Pennsylvania. With 1,200 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Virginia has seen a surge of 33 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Pennsylvania, the sum total has shot up by 25 percent to 4,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall, but Minnesota sees the opposite. There have been 3.2 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace through the last fortnight compared to the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have dropped by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.
