Google has assigned the highest priority to fixing this issue, and released a beta version of Chrome 70, which protects against this attack by default. If you are using an earlier version of Chrome, we strongly recommend updating as soon as possible. In addition to the fixes described in this advisory, Google Chrome 70 also improves security by blocking Google Analytics scripts in Incognito mode by default. If you are using Google Analytics on an unencrypted site, you may now see an error message stating that data collection is blocked due to security reasons.
