The sum total of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Texas built up during the previous 14 days. According to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 24 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. Overall, in the USA, there was a slight growth of 8.2 percent.

Syspeace documented 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Texas in the course of the previous 14 days. That is to say, the brute-force attacks built up by 24 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Texas was 26,000.

For comparison, automated hacking attempts in Rhode Island and Ohio have grown. With 140 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Rhode Island has seen a surge of 28 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Ohio, the sum total has risen by 24 percent to 130 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight escalation all around the USA. Simply put, Texas is not alone with the problem. During the last weeks there have been 8.2 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the last fortnight in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 2,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have diminished by 11 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The data is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
