Noticeable Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in California

In the last fortnight, the amount of automated hacking attempts in California grew compared to the previous 14 days. The brute-force attacks have grown by 16 percent in the past two weeks, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a slight fall of 8.7 percent in the whole USA.

In California, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers grew slightly throughout the past two weeks as 910 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased by 16 percent. Syspeace blocked 28,000 brute-force attacks in California.

There has been, for the sake of comparison, an escalation of the sum total of brute-force attacks in New Mexico and Georgia. With 26 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, New Mexico has witnessed an increase of 18 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Georgia, the number has climbed up by 2.3 percent to 170 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

California is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the USA. In the last weeks, there have been 8.7 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the previous 14 days in the USA. Up until today, this year there have been 1,100 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 43 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 430,000.

The evidence is provided by 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 monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
