What does this code on my site's footer do?

You have code on your web page you don’t understand? Why?

It is a simple web bug to execute a request to a URL, this one just logs the access time.

URL decoded:

<img src=”https://stackoverflow.com/questions/23683288/GET_BASE_URL/cronlog/run/<?php echo time(); ?>” width=”1″ height=”1″ />

Where GET_BASE_URL is the base URL of the page. So it accesses your site, probably providing statistics–make sense if this is a forum.
