I found data transfers from pixel.quantserve.com when I open my website. I don't know what is
"pixel.quantserve.com". Is my website hacked?

It is something operated by Quantcast:

http://www.quantcast.com/

For instance we use it on Ozzu and it measures our traffic. We put the code there ourselves though. If you view our source on ozzu you will see this code at the bottom:

Code: [ Select ]
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://edge.quantserve.com/quant.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">_qacct="p-98AeTKKo1QQh-";quantserve();</script>
<noscript>
<a href="http://www.quantcast.com/p-98AeTKKo1QQh-" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://pixel.quantserve.com/pixel/p-98AeTKKo1QQh-.gif" style="display: none;" border="0" height="1" width="1" alt="Quantcast"></a>
</noscript>
  1. <script type="text/javascript" src="http://edge.quantserve.com/quant.js"></script>
  2. <script type="text/javascript">_qacct="p-98AeTKKo1QQh-";quantserve();</script>
  3. <noscript>
  4. <a href="http://www.quantcast.com/p-98AeTKKo1QQh-" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://pixel.quantserve.com/pixel/p-98AeTKKo1QQh-.gif" style="display: none;" border="0" height="1" width="1" alt="Quantcast"></a>
  5. </noscript>


Notice the pixel.quantserve.com line.

I would be willing to bet you are on some kind of freehost where they are inserting the Quantcast traffic tracking code. Can you confirm this?

Quantserve is like Google Analytics, to attract advertisers, as they see your public validated traffic rank and have some idea of the type and number of visitors they might be advertising to
