If you see a major increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where such an option is made available. Unfortunately, that is something relatively frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Needless to say, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
