Noticeable Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in California Documented

Throughout the two weeks prior, California has witnessed how the number of brute-force attacks has grew slightly. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a surge of 11 percent in brute-force attacks per server. There was an escalation of 33 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace logged 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in California throughout the previous 14-day period. That means the brute-force attacks grew by 11 percent. The amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in California was 54,000.

For a comparison, automated hacking attempts in Arkansas and Georgia have grown. With 4,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Arkansas has seen a growth of 12 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Georgia, the amount has risen by 4.5 percent to 210 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown an escalation, so California is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have climbed up by 33 percent in the USA in the course of the previous 14 days. So far, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has decreased by 59 percent. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 340,000.

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

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
