About Users calculation: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2992042?hl=en But the most important is a part: It relies on number of sessions and client-side time, so if a user's client-side time is incorrect, or if you are using a reporting view that filters out some sessions from a user (instead of all users), the data can be inconsistent. So ...

Click Behavior/Behavior Flow for a graphical view with many options.

It's most likely an attempt to spam your logs/analytics. Many websites accidentally leave their logs and/or analytics publicly available and as a result crawlers index their contents.
