Extreme Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts in Kentucky

In the course of the two weeks prior, the amount of automated hacking attempts in Kentucky skyrocketed compared to the past two weeks. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have shot up by 110 percent. However, there was no change in the amount of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 110 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Kentucky in the past two weeks. That means the automated hacking attempts escalated by 110 percent. Syspeace blocked 190 automated hacking attempts in Kentucky.

By way of comparison, automated hacking attempts in North Carolina and Arkansas have climbed up. With 2,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, North Carolina has witnessed a rise of 120 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Arkansas, the sum total has increased by 37 percent to 5,400 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

So far, this year there have been 810 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 52 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 320,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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 checked to find the correct one.
