If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this kind of an option is offered. Regrettably, this is something relatively popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots shall 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 site.
