In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other web servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this sort of an option is provided. However, this is something quite popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
