QuestionHow does this hack with referrers work? Pin

I downloaded the log file from the web server, and found many strange entries. Why is a statistics script called so terribly often? What do all the junk referrers do there? Looks like some mis-configuration of the Plesk software for managing IIS.
Literally hundreds of times a day, http://cydas.org/plesk-stat/webstat/AWStats/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?framename=mainright&output=refererpages[^] is called. This shows the referrer statistics for the web site - virtually none of them is related to Cytogenetics (that's what the web site is about). Most of them are dubious domains.
The statistics page does not show query parameters, as they are required for a good link to YouTube. But the logs show many referrals from YouTube (most of them say: "This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.", but one is still available and bears the title "Generateur de Code PaySafeCard - Gratuit Code PaySafeCard" - criminal content, I guess).
What are your experiences with such a strange thing, how does this kind of hack work, and more important: how to prevent it?
[Edit]With a Google search (for awstats.pl and further search terms[^]), I found some more web sites which are such infected, and fake "user profiles" which link to the statistics page as their "home page".[/Edit]
