    Most likely seomalt or something like that , it is just a way to drive traffic by faking referrals so that - you the webmaster will visit the site showing up in traffic source .

    I am not sure how exactly it is done though

    It's an old school trick to get backlink from statlogs.

    Try submitting your site here :

    Code:
    http://semalt.com/project_crawler.php

    To exclude your site from their crawler list.

    Semalt is doing this referrer spam lately so most likely it's their crawlers who hit your site with that referral link.

    Obviously It must be created by that site owner and they're doing this to get a backlink from your site. If your status logs are set to be accessed by public, then search engines can crawl those pages and index that url as a backlink so essentially it'll boost that site's SERPs. It won't have any effect on your rankings though.

    There's more to it than creating a .php file but yeah, you can do it if you want and IF it works.
