Sounds like Pingback spam from a site that is monitoring your RSS feed. You should be careful about that.

Pingbacks can be useful but you should make sure you're moderating them.

Also, several million Wordpress sites have not been updated past version 3.5, which is vulnerable to a known exploit that is hammering the Web right now with pingback requests.
