Are My Stats Accessible To The Public?I am getting a lot of "Links" like this:
http://220.127.116.11/?xurl=http%3A%2F%2F18.104.22.168%2FOKw17Etl7S3MJSo7d2c1ff1d58d0d7ccf693192416de7b6905A&xref="MY URL IS HERE"
If I Google parts of that URL I get XML files to tons of different websites and it looks like their Getclicky stats.
Is that what I'm seeing? I have started to block all the IP's coming in like this for now.

I have no idea what that is. I was not able to find anything on Google that links it to Clicky stats, but no your stats are not publicly accessible unless you enable that option in your site preferences.
I have just deployed a fix to filter out these referrers. The "visitors" will still be logged but the referrer will be ignored.

At least that what it looks like to me.

That seems pretty random! But, I can tell from the results, those are all for the same "site", and it's OUR site stats for one of our partners (freewebs). The sitekey must have been publicly available at some point.

So why am I getting a bunch of referrals in my stats saying traffic is coming from those URL's to my website? I mean something isn't right here.
