In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the globe or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this sort of an option is offered. 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 site in any way. Of course, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
