If you see a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites looking to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where this type of an option is available. Regrettably, that is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Obviously, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.
