Click Hijacking

Click hijacking is a type of attribution fraud generated by mobile malware. The malware is often embedded in legitimate-looking apps, and can hardly be detected by users. A fraudulent click report from a different ad network is created and sent immediately after a legitimate click is detected, claiming the last-touch position for the app install event. The legitimate click is therefore hijacked.
