If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites seeking to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this kind of an option is provided. The fact is that, that's something rather common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
