In the USA, New Jersey Records unprecedented Brute-Force Attacks

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in New Jersey have escalated through the previous 14 days. The brute-force attacks have risen by 250 percent through the previous 14 days, according to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the USA, that’s the greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. At the same time, there was a slight decrease of 11 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace recorded 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in New Jersey during the previous 14 days. That is to say, the brute-force attacks skyrocketed by 250 percent. Syspeace blocked 4,300 automated hacking attempts in New Jersey.

By means of a comparison, Georgia and Iowa have been under increased attacks. With 440 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Georgia has witnessed a growth of 130 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Iowa, the sum total has climbed up by 78 percent to 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall all around the USA. In other words, New Jersey is going against the flow. There have been 11 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers during the previous 14 days compared to the 14 days prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. During the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has remained the same. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 750,000.

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 tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
