If you notice a large increase in the traffic to your site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this type of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that is something rather popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.
