    Strange referrer in logs
    Looking through the logs of a site I noticed this as the referrer:

    Code:
    JC_UNKNOWN_VAR_cloak.base-2009-08-07-00-01.vars.referer__
    Anyone know what it is, the ip address associated with the visit is from Google. Is it anything to be concerned about?

    I Found a few here through Google. I didn't click any of the links, so click at your own risk: http://www.google.com/search?q=vars....ient=firefox-a

    Are you sure it's from Google? Perhaps some bot that is cloaking to be G.

    With the word cloak in the referrer, I would be careful. Could be some sort of referrer spam bot gone crazy!

    I entered your code line on G so I found a directory with many links including your code line. I clicked one of them, nothing happened. It just refreshed the page.
