In the past two weeks, the sum total of automated hacking attempts in New Jersey surged compared to the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 100 percent in the course of the previous 14-day period, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the USA, that’s the third greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. Overall, in the USA, there was a slight increase of 15 percent.

The sum total of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace soared in the two weeks prior in New Jersey as 340 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased extremely by 100 percent. That means 870 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the New Jersey in the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

Utah and Iowa have – for the sake of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 720 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Utah has seen a surge of 110 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Iowa, the amount has shot up by 96 percent to 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

New Jersey is not alone. The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight growth all around the USA. In the last weeks there have been 15 percent more brute-force attacks than during the previous 14 days in the USA. So far, this year there have been 1,600 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. In the course of the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has increased by 4.6 percent. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 770,000.

The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.
