    You can use advanced segments after you block certain IPs the ones that are sending the spam to filter out past referral spam.

    These are ghost referral links, you can create filter and using segments to exclude ghost referral spam.

    Don,t worry about that after creating a filter for every ghost referral link it would we remove by default, but keep patience because it will take some time.
