Is the use of idsite unsecure?

Hy to all!
Sorry wrong title: i mean “problematic” not unsecure

I have installed piwik since a few month.
But now I have found the following problem with a site.
Example:
Site 1 (with idsite=1) makes only some visits (100 / month)
Site 2 (with idsite=2) makes many visits a day (over 100 / day)

Now I have used the wrong idsite in the Code for the new Site 2 and
all visists are counted to the Site 1.
I don´t need correction of the data because the stats only for me and I have
changed the idsite now.
I want to use it on all my sites also for the customers, but if some customer
takes the wrong idsite-Tag (some have many sites) then also the stats are wrong.
Is this normal?
Is some check for the used domainname planned ?
Thanks
JK

You are shure to implement checking calling site after Piwik 1.0?

IMNSHO it is a very critical security hole -> Training camp for DoS for absolute beginners. In most worst case a DDoS might be possible.

For me the same applies to this absolute dependancy on visitor’s browser at the moment. More action on server side would increase security very much.

Let’s frame this in the right context. Currently, this is no less secure than GA, Y!A, MS Analytics, or many other client-based tracking systems.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, please!

For me it is a security hole. No matter which application you take.

I never said named applications being secure … :->
