    My site was just hacked and a Youtube video was injected into the homepage. The fix was to disable Easy Google Analytics. It appears the plugin has been hacked. Simply disable or remove the plugin and the problem goes away.

    Whoa. Thank you for this life-saving information right here. I think that it is more appropriate to work more on your security if this happens way too often. There are a lot of repercussions when you already have a tainted security line-up so invest on it.

    Is it even possible to protect yourself against something like this? I think it's the plugin owner's fault for not having the proper security in place.
