If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other web servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random Internet sites attempting to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this sort of an option is offered. However, this is something rather popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way.
