In case you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this sort of an option is provided. The fact is that, this is something rather common 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. Of course, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
