The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Mississippi increased greatly during the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 64 percent. That’s the third largest growth of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. At the same time, there was a slight decline of 3.2 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace built up in the past two weeks in Mississippi as 230 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts built up by 64 percent. The number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Mississippi was 850. During a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 6th highest number of brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

By means of a comparison, there has been a climb of the number of automated hacking attempts in Alabama and Oregon. With 12,000 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Alabama has recorded a rise of 82 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Oregon, the amount has gone up by 62 percent to 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight fall all around the USA. That is to say, Mississippi is going against the flow. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 3.2 percent less automated hacking attempts than throughout the two weeks prior in the USA. Up until today, this year there have been 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
