In the USA, Arizona Sees unprecedented Automated Hacking Attempts

Arizona route-66 syspeace brute force

The report doesn’t lie — the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Arizona has shot up during the 14 days prior. Information from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 600 percent. In the USA, that’s the largest rise of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers. In the whole USA, there was a slight escalation of 5.3 percent.

In Arizona, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased extremely throughout the last fortnight as 8,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts escalated by 600 percent. Syspeace blocked 31,000 automated hacking attempts in Arizona. It is the 4th highest number of brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

By means of a comparison, automated hacking attempts in Nebraska and South Carolina have climbed up. With 1,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Nebraska has seen an increase of 200 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In South Carolina, the amount has gone up by 190 percent to 200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight escalation all around the USA. Simply put, Arizona is not alone with the problem. In the course of the last weeks there have been 5.3 percent more brute-force attacks than throughout the last fortnight in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Throughout the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has increased by 5.1 percent. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 710,000.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
