If you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this type of an option is offered. However, that's something relatively frequent nowadays, 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. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
