In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites attempting to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where such an option is made available. Regrettably, this is something relatively common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
