Unprecedented Rise in Brute-Force Attacks in New Jersey, USA

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in New Jersey have increased extremely throughout the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 330 percent in the course of the last fortnight, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. That’s the greatest growth of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in the USA. However, there was no change in the sum total of brute-force attacks in the whole USA.

In New Jersey, the amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up during the last fortnight as 760 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 330 percent. That means 5,400 total the number of brute-force attacks in the New Jersey during the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

Oregon and Texas have – for a comparison – been under increased attacks. With 220 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the two weeks prior, Oregon has seen a rise of 83 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Texas, the amount has risen by 49 percent to 400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been unchanged, but, as said, New Jersey has escalating problems. Up until now, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 45 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 420,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.
