If you see a considerable increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other web servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this sort of an option is offered. Unfortunately, that's 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 not be able to access your site in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
