New Jersey Sees a Significant Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

In New Jersey, the sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased greatly in the previous 14 days in comparison with the previous 14-day period. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have shot up by 50 percent. In contrast, there was a slight decrease of 4 percent in the whole USA.

In New Jersey, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased noticeably through the last fortnight as 620 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks increased noticeably by 50 percent. That means 3,300 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the New Jersey in the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

For a comparison, Arizona and Kentucky have been under increased attacks. With 220 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the previous 14-day period, Arizona has witnessed a surge of 70 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Kentucky, the number has increased by 44 percent to 200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

New Jersey is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. There have been 4 percent less brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers during the past two weeks compared to the last fortnight. So far, this year there have been 940 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 54 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 360,000.
