Yes, they're including a remote javascript. Then again, tens if not
hundreds of thousands of other websites include the very same script.
If statcounter's servers aren't very secure, they would have already

One would *hope* that a major country's spook agencies kept themselves to a
*slightly* higher security standard than Sixpack Joe's Website and
Bait-n-Tackle Emporium.  The risk/benefit analysis for the average .com and
the average .spook are a bit different.

On the other hand, look at the voting machines the US gov't has
contracted. They have a tendency to screw up with technology, making
this one of their lesser problems (if you want to consider it a
problem at all).

A totally separate problem, but one that's not in DIA's jurisdiction.
