Sitemeter Giving Problem to Internet Explorer Sites

I found out this morning that I cant visit my two sites, Orang Cina and Bursa-KLSE Blogs and News. Upon checking, I found out the problem is caused by Sitemeter tracking code. The sitemeter is causing all Internet Explorer to fail.

You can read more here

We apologize if you’ve been trying to visit the site this evening and it’s been
down.

We just discovered that the SiteMeter (www.sitemeter.com) tracking
code that counts visitors to our site was causing visits from Internet Explorer
to crash. We first realized the issue at 8:30pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
After further investigation, we discovered that SiteMeter is bringing down every
site where its counter code is loaded when the visiting browser is Internet
Explorer versions 6.0 and 7.0. The error may also affect Internet Explorer 5.5.

The text of the error is “Internet Explorer cannot open the internet
site.”

We removed the Sitemeter tracking code from our site and now the
site is loading fine. When the bug is fixed, we will update this post. Thanks
for visiting!

I have removed the code and both my sites are ok now. :)
