This is called referrer spam. A bot is sent to your site with a spam site in its referrer header. This is then logged in your stats software. As some stats software are public, the URLs get indexed and counted as an inbound link. As long as your web statistics require a login to gain access, you will not be effected by this and should simply ignore the URLs.

Kjonix, Evil is right. You will notice this a lot more as your site gets more popular. It's a pain in the ass but an unfortunate fact. You can use custom filters in Google Analytics if needed to clean up your dirty clickstream data.
