    I've got the plugin installed on two of my websites. Both have some very strange statistics on random dates.

    How can I prevent this?

    It looks like you were hit with a hack attempt, they happen sometimes as they try and brute force the admin user password.

    You can exclude the login page from stats, which usually helps, but if they're poking around the site for other vulnerabilities there's not much you can do.

    Oh I forgot, what about the second image where there are vistors but no visits?

    Did you upgrade to 7.0-7.0.2? If so that can happen during the upgrade process that was included in those releases.

    If you see it happen in the future open a new thread and we can investigate some more.
