How Click Spam works
1. Fraudsters register with mobile ad networks and receive tracking links which they can use to steal organic installs and receive payment for them.
2. Fraudsters then try to “infect” as many mobile devices as possible by clicking on sponsored ad links for as many apps and games as possible.
3. As soon as a user opens any of these infected apps, the fraudster sends an automatic click in the background with the fraudsters tracking link, not the tracking link of the actual publisher showing the ad.
NOTE: It is important to understand that installs generated organically are assigned to the tracking link with the last action (click or view) before the app was opened for the first time.
