All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decrease, but Florida sees the opposite. There have been 3.2 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the course of the previous 14 days compared to the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The brute-force attacks have decreased by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.
