If you see a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites attempting to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this kind of an option is provided. The fact is that, this is something rather common nowadays, 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 Internet site in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.
