An unknown attacker inserted malicious code into the latest version of the Piwik open-source Web analytics software after compromising the project's website on Monday.
Piwik can be used to track and generate statistics about visitors, ad clicks, website referrers and aspects of a website's traffic. It's similar to Google Analytics but designed to be installed and hosted by website owners on their own servers.
