In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other web servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites attempting to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this kind of an option is provided. Unfortunately, this is something quite common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
