If you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites 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 type of an option is provided. However, that is something rather frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Obviously, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
