In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your site and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this type of an option is offered. Unfortunately, this is something quite common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
