Those programs go through random websites looking to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where this type of an option is available. The fact is that, that's something quite common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
