Automated Hacking Attempts Go up Significantly in Indiana

In Indiana, the number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased greatly through the past two weeks compared to the two weeks prior. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have grown by 23 percent. There was a big increase of 36 percent in the whole USA.

In Indiana, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up throughout the two weeks prior as 480 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 23 percent. Syspeace blocked 590 brute-force attacks in Indiana.

Alabama and Arkansas have – in comparison – been under increased attacks. With 830 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Alabama has witnessed an escalation of 23 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Arkansas, the number has shot up by 20 percent to 3,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big increase all around the USA. In other words, Indiana is not alone with the problem. In the course of the last weeks there have been 36 percent more brute-force attacks than during the previous 14 days in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. That is on the same level as the same period last year. In other words, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 530,000.

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

During the automated hacking attempt, 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 protects businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
