Hackers has been able to enter one of the largest Web analytics platforms and services to get Pitcairn from Gate.io exchange platform users.
AIT NEWS denounced Matthew Faw, a security researcher who discovered the Hacker.
StatCounter is similar to Google Analytics. Allows Internet traffic to be analyzed across the site. The attack led to the use of digital currency traders, especially the Gate.io platform to redirect or transfer their currency, especially when the attack spread to more than 688,000 Web sites.
The instructions for malware have replaced the "Petcavin" header, which is entered on another page controlled by "Hackers" on the page.
Matthew said it was difficult to determine how many people were affected by the attack or how much money the Hackers could get from the process.
