Pennsylvania Aghast by Third Largest Rise in Automated Hacking Attempts in the USA

During the two weeks prior, Pennsylvania has seen how the sum total of brute-force attacks has surged. Information from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have risen by 100 percent. In the USA, that’s the third largest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. At the same time, there was a slight decrease of 4.4 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace skyrocketed during the previous 14-day period in Pennsylvania as 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 100 percent. That means 4,000 total the number of automated hacking attempts in the Pennsylvania during the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

In comparison, there has been a growth of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Massachusetts and Alabama. With 430 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the 14 days prior, Massachusetts has witnessed a rise of 120 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Alabama, the number has gone up by 56 percent to 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight contraction all around the USA. In other words, Pennsylvania is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have dropped by 4.4 percent in the USA in the 14 days prior. So far, this year there have been 980 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have grown by 55 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.

The information is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent.
