In case you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random sites trying to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where such an option is made available. Unfortunately, that is something relatively popular 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 website in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.
