In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random websites trying to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is available. However, that is something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
