In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your site and if after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this kind of an option is made available. Unfortunately, that's something quite common nowadays, 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 Internet site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
