"In Google Chrome v6.0.472.55, a bug in JavaScript engine caused the reporting of wrong type of some JavaScript objects in some specific case. This caused Chrome to incorrectly execute Analytics' JavaScript, providing an artificially high visitor count for some websites, for their visitors using that particular version of Chrome browser. "Not all Analytics accounts were affected. The affected period will vary for accounts but wouldn't have appeared before Sep'7th," informs Google.

A fix was released for all versions of Chrome on Sep'22nd.

"You can determine whether a profile was affected by comparing visit data from Sep'7th to approx. Sep'22nd with a previous date range. If you think your account was affected and want to segment out visits from that date range from the affected Chrome release, you can create an advanced segment similar to this one," explained Google.
