If you see a major increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is provided. The fact is that, that's something relatively popular these days, 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 can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.
