NevadaRecords Second Greatest Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in the USA

In the past two weeks, Nevada has seen how the amount of brute-force attacks has escalated. The automated hacking attempts have gone up by 87 percent in the previous 14-day period, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. That’s the second greatest growth of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. In contrast, there was a big decline of 33 percent in the whole USA.

The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace skyrocketed throughout the 14 days prior in Nevada as 48 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks skyrocketed by 87 percent. Syspeace blocked 54 brute-force attacks in Nevada.

There has been, with similar changes, a growth of the number of automated hacking attempts in Pennsylvania and Illinois. With 3,400 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Pennsylvania has seen an increase of 190 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Illinois, the sum total has grown by 50 percent to 84 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big drop all around the USA. That is to say, Nevada is going against the flow. There have been 33 percent less automated hacking attempts in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the past two weeks compared to the past two weeks. By now, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA.
