In case you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites looking to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this type of an option is made available. The fact is that, that's something relatively common lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
