If you see a significant increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this kind of an option is made available. The fact is that, that is something relatively frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could 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 specific countries to access your site.
