A friend of mine works for a large multinational company. he has been contacted today by a finnish company that is offering him the website statistics of a large competitor.
Is this possible?
I cannot seem how they would have gotten their hands on this information. I'm pretty sure that this is illegal.
Does anyone know something about this?

Webstats data mining is what I think you're referring to. Used to be very easy back in the day when everyone used free trackers or log file analaysis software which published reports on their own server, free of any password protection.

Changed days now though with GA, etc.
