In the USA, New Jersey Sees Third Greatest Increase of Brute-Force Attacks

There’s no denying of facts — the amount of brute-force attacks in New Jersey has surged during the past two weeks. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 110 percent during the past two weeks, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. That’s the third greatest increase of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. However, there was a slight fall of 8.7 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace recorded 180 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in New Jersey in the course of the previous 14 days. That means the brute-force attacks shot up by 110 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in New Jersey was 640.

North Carolina and Oregon have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 5,700 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, North Carolina has recorded a growth of 1,600 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Oregon, the amount has risen by 85 percent to 290 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline all around the USA. In other words, New Jersey is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 8.7 percent in the USA in the course of the last fortnight. Up until today, this year there have been 1,100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have increased by 43 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 430,000.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts.

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

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
