I've noticed recently that some of my referrals look like they are from firewalls.

Delby Filseclab Firewall ( )
Sonicwall CFS Rating Engine ( reffered by )

This is new to me. Does anyone have any further info about this and should I be concerned about it?

Some antivirus/firewall solutions block the referrer variable from your machine to the internet; some mask it... some replace it with their own site for shameless advertising.
