Iowa Records 23 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts

The report doesn’t lie — the amount of brute-force attacks in Iowa has increased noticeably in the course of the two weeks prior. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an increase of 23 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was no change in the amount of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

In Iowa, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up through the previous 14-day period as 700 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts built up by 23 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Iowa was 11,000.

In comparison, there has been a surge of the number of brute-force attacks in Colorado and New Jersey. With 34 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Colorado has seen a growth of 34 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In New Jersey, the sum total has climbed up by 22 percent to 3,300 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have been almost stable, but, as said, Iowa has rising difficulties. Up until today, this year there have been 900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 2.9 percent. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.

The data comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

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

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