If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites attempting to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this type of an option is available. Unfortunately, that is something relatively common these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
