In case you notice a big increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other web servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this kind of an option is available. The fact is that, that's something rather popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.
