MajesticSEO reporting backlinks to non-existant spammy pages

I'm a little concerned about some results I'm getting from the Pages tab in Majestic Site Explorer - it's reporting non-existant, spammy urls on my website. None have any backlinks but were are "Last Seen" by Majestic within the last month or so.

The urls are all along the lines of www.mydomain.com/livecams.html (and others I won't post - you get the idea...)

These pages don't exist on my server, in the google/bing index (as far as I can tell), and I'm pretty confident the site hasn't been hacked - should I be concerned by this?

Sounds like Majestic has picked up links to these non existent pages but not parsed correctly your 404 page.

Just to be on the safe side check you are not sending out a soft 404 page with status 200.

Thanks for the reply - the pages are definitely returning a 404.

Majestic has no data for the source of these backlinks, but I was just a little concerned that, by association, it may affect our rankings.
