If you see a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this sort of an option is offered. Regrettably, that's something rather common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
