If you see a significant increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries all over the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this kind of an option is provided. The fact is that, that's something quite frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through 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. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
