WP-Polls
Possible Malicious Javascript (3 posts)

    I just found that wp-poll includes the following Javascript to my website:

    <script src="http://stats.wordpress.com/e-201208.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    	st_go({v:'ext',j:'1:1.2.2',blog:'7943387',post:'0'});
    	var load_cmc = function(){linktracker_init(7943387,0,2);};
    	if ( typeof addLoadEvent != 'undefined' ) addLoadEvent(load_cmc);
    	else load_cmc();
    	</script>

    And this also breaks the website. When I disabled wp-polls, the code disappears.

    I think I was mistaken. It seems to come with "Jetpack by WordPress.com" plugin. It was suspicious because http://stats.wordpress.com/ doesn't return anything.
