In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites seeking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this sort of an option is offered.
