Analytics Hacked

Looking at my google analytics pages I noted a number of hits from unexpected cities like Moscow, Vienna, St. Petersburg and others.

At the same time, under language there was a message that said, "Secret Google.com. You are invited. Vote for Trump."

I've attached screen shots to demonstrate. Seems consistent with confirmed reports of Russian hacking. Maybe they help determine what happened and can help figure out how to prevent it from happening again.

If there are steps I should be taking to further protect myself and my data, please let me know.

All my data is blocked except secret google. I have been so obsessed with removing this secret google vote for trump malware that I trashed  my entire google accounts for a fresh start over. Did not work. As a last resort would replacing windows 7 with  windows 10 help to break this link? Google please put a few whiz kids to work on this problem now.   Bernard

Google is too big to give good customer support. They would never dream of having anything like a live Chat Agent box on their website, if only for public relations purposes. Apparently, we're on our own as far as Google Analytics for our websites being made worthless by hackers. Good luck everyone!
