If you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this type of an option is provided. Regrettably, that is something rather common in recent times, 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 site in any way. Needless to say, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
