Integral Ad Science’s Threat Lab is dedicated to studying and eradicating fraud from the ad tech ecosystem. The Avireen bot was reported on extensively by IAS in April 2016. It is a stealthy and flexible ad fraud botnet that generates approximately 1,500 fraudulent website impressions per hour per infected computer.
Part of IAS’s bot paper series, “An Inside Look at Avireen Botnet” goes into specific technical detail of not only what Avireen does, but how it carries out ad fraud.
