In case you notice a big increase in the traffic to your website and if after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries all over the world or from other servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random sites seeking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where such an option is available. Regrettably, this is something rather common lately, 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 website in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
