If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where such an option is made available. The fact is that, that is something relatively popular nowadays, 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 may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
