If you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random Internet sites attempting to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this kind of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that is something relatively popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.
