If you notice a large increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where this sort of an option is offered. Unfortunately, that's something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.
