If you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random websites seeking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is offered. Regrettably, that is something relatively common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.
