Georgia Aghast by Third Largest Rise in Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA
In Georgia, the sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased significantly in the previous 14 days compared to the last fortnight. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 110 percent. In the USA, that’s the third greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. However, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.
The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace soared through the two weeks prior in Georgia as 740 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts escalated by 110 percent. That means 4,000 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Georgia during the last fortnight were blocked by Syspeace. In the state’s measured history, this is the 14th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period.
For comparison purposes, Connecticut and Colorado have been under increased attacks. With 4,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Connecticut has witnessed a surge of 110 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Colorado, the number has grown by 61 percent to 46 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.
All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost the same, but, as said, Georgia has increasing troubles. Up until today, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has decreased by 9.6 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 920,000.
The data comes from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for enterprises to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.
During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.
To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
