Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Connecticut

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Connecticut have increased greatly through the previous 14 days. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 36 percent. At the same time, there was no change in the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

Syspeace recorded 2,800 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Connecticut throughout the last fortnight. That means the brute-force attacks went up by 36 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Connecticut was 20,000.

By way of comparison, South Carolina and Nebraska have been under increased attacks. With 94 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, South Carolina has seen a climb of 55 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Nebraska, the amount has grown by 19 percent to 91 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been almost the same, but, as said, Connecticut has escalating problems. By now, this year there have been 950 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has diminished by 67 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 400,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The data originates from Windows servers secured by Syspeace globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for enterprises to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.
