Jib hanks and corrosion

I used a different jib this weekend, one with copper hanks. I got caught in a storm and left the jib hanked on overnight. When I removed the jib the next day, nearly all the copper hanks were covered with green corrosion. In just one night? Is this a sign of a serious corrosion problem on my boat? I am struggling with other small spots of corrosion but is this normal?

Any information would help!

Thank you -
KJ
