If you notice a major increase in the traffic to your website and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites seeking to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this type of an option is provided. Regrettably, that's something quite 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 Internet site in any way. Obviously, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
