Ok, found it at /.:
A Web Bug is a graphics on a Web page or in an Email message
that is designed to monitor who is reading the Web page or Email
message. Web Bugs are often invisible because they are typically
only 1-by-1 pixel in size. They are represented as HTML IMG tags.
Yeah, I was aware of the technique, but not the name. YAR not to open
HTML-formatted email spam.
