Third Greatest Rise of Brute-Force Attacks in the USA in Maine

In Maine, the number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers escalated throughout the two weeks prior compared to the previous 14-day period. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 130 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. That’s the third largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in the USA. Overall, in the USA, there was a big increase of 36 percent.

In Maine, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace escalated through the past two weeks as 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 130 percent. That means 1,400 total the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the Maine in the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace. In the state’s measured history, this is the 15th highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

Colorado and New York have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 120 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Colorado has recorded a surge of 240 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In New York, the number has shot up by 120 percent to 5,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown an escalation, so Maine is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shot up by 36 percent in the USA in the previous 14 days. So far, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. That is on the same level as the same period last year. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 530,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

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