so TLDR ... dont install junk from random people, dont pirate software (as 99.9% of the time its modified)... and dont upload/run code that you dont know what it does... sounds like simple security steps.

also the thing you're posting about is literally a fake user, a bot essentially using a modified referral/metadata. not a security issue, not really a SEO issue either. its someone just sending their language string is "french toast" instead of "EN-US" or w/e their actual language is.

Yep you're right

Just checked my google analytics and there it is staring me in the face in the sessions reports

This is scary.


It's really not and not anything to worry about.

Anyone can spoof the language, referrer, and just about any other piece of information that gets sent back to google analytics.
