If you see a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this sort of an option is made available. Unfortunately, that is something quite frequent 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. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
