Exploiting Web Analytics
to Profile Internet Users Around the World
FireEye has identified a large-scale
reconnaissance effort that uses web analytics and open source tools to

with targeted malware. Specific websites are altered to redirect
victims to a profiling script known as WITCHCOVEN, which collects
information and installs a supercookie to identify the victims’ computers.
