Bad referrer

i’m getting strange ‘bad referrers’ from addresses like ‘xxxx:++++++++++’ how do I check where these are coming from? How can it refer to my page at all?

The referer header is easily faked and it is not even required to be present.

Referers are specified by the HTTP client, and of course the HTTP client is “coming from” the IP address you would see in the HTTP access log.
