If you notice a large increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries all over the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this sort of an option is available. Regrettably, that is something relatively popular nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
