Serious new Google Analytics security problem

I ran into a really disturbing security incident in the new Google Analytics interface today. A friend of mine was making me able to see the stats of upcoming accommodation website www.aboveeurope.com and an error occurred during the operation. What a surprise for me it was when I could see the statistics of totally foreign website in my analytics account afterwards!

I contacted Google immediately and will post any new facts here.

See the screenshot of my Analytics account with the stats of website I shouldn’t be allowed to see (I don’t know that corporation nor I am in any way affiliated with it):
