The ads, which are likely to increase on YouTube, are usually a small but tiresome part of our time, but they allow programs to run for free without charging us more for use than few seconds a day. So a fraud prevention system where millions are redirected from advertisers is not a good thing.
The fraud was Cheetah Mobileand its subsidiaries, Kika Tech; They fooled advertisers, dropping results from indications of third-party app installs, pretending that the number of advertiser app installs was greater than the actual one. The scheme was identified by Kochava, analysts.
They incorrectly used data from users who had installed their programs, track new downloaded programs, and steal money from installed services, including other references. Google conducts the survey to determine what measures should be taken.
We have no intention of conducting fraud, and we will do everything possible to ensure a prompt and complete correction of the situation.
Confirmed the subsidiary Kika Tech.
While cheetah blamed on software development packages (SDKs) in the ad network by clicking injection or involved third parties, but soon rejected by Kochava, who pointed out that SDK participating in fraudulent actions developed both and Cheetah Mobile. She then denied SDK's participation in fraud.
