|Very weird backlink visble at WebMasterTools|

I'm looking around in the "Crawl errors" in webmastertools, and I found something very wierd!
Let's say my site is www.mydomain.com
I have backlinks from this site (look at the end of the link)
And it links to:
Where the staticpage32.html is deleted about 4 years ago (this was a system I had on a former system)
I find about 100 of these links.
I have NO idea what this site does: http://www.keyword1-keyword2.com/korean.php?u=arabic.php
And it is NOT mine...
I have checked my site, and I have no virus/malicious code in any of my php-files.
Anyone know how I can get rid of them?

If your server responds to that URL request with a 404 status (or 410) then you don't need to do anything about those URLs in your link report.

It returns a 404 error.
But what are those links?

Some spammer was creating automated pages and links for whatever reason they had. Testing some idea, buggy script - it's just not worth worrying about.

Of course, tedster is right. A similar situation has happened on this end in the past, and it's nothing to worry about..... has not effected our site or rankings at all.

What If weird pages like domain.com/?abc=5325

These all popped up a week ago around the time of all the chaos.
