Giant ad fraud scheme drained Android users’ batteries and data

March 27, 2019 | Research
As of this week, reports have been surfacing showing that every average smartphone may be exposed to a giant ad fraud scheme.

This can explain why your Android phone is draining its battery at lightspeed. Plus increase costs by extra data transfers. A video ad fraud scheme uses bots to play hidden videos on apps in devices that were attacked.

This is new threat to millions of users of smartphones. Although primary targets are big advertisers like MacDondal’s, as reported last year, now also more than 2 billion phone users are exposed worldwide.
