But an investigation by BuzzFeed News reveals that these seemingly separate apps and companies are today part of a massive, sophisticated digital advertising fraud scheme involving more than 125 Android apps and websites connected to a network of front and shell companies in Cyprus, Malta, British Virgin Islands, Croatia, Bulgaria, and elsewhere. More than a dozen of the affected apps are targeted at kids or teens, and a person involved in the scheme estimates it has stolen hundreds of millions of dollars from brands whose ads were shown to bots instead of actual humans. Scammers were buying applications from developers, and after adding usage behavior tracking tools to these existing applications, used said data to mimic "real" user behaviour.
One way the fraudsters find apps for their scheme is to acquire legitimate apps through We Purchase Apps and transfer them to shell companies. They then capture the behavior of the app's human users and program a vast network of bots to mimic it, according to analysis from Protected Media, a cybersecurity and fraud detection firm that analyzed the apps and websites at BuzzFeed News' request.

Sure, this is all terrible and probably quite illegal, but honestly, you have to respect the ingenuity here.

I'm a dog lover so I'm totally into this, but it also looks damn good. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Marios Piperides' Smuggling Hendrix, direct from YouTube: Yiannis ...

"What kind of person would fake a heart attack?" An official trailer has debuted for a documentary titled The Ghost of Peter Sellers, which is playing at film festivals this fall without a release date yet. The film tells the story of how famed actor Peter Sellers started to work an epic 17th Century pirate movie near Cyprus, called Ghost in the Noonday Sun, which became a disaster while filming and was never released in theaters. Structured around the original director Peter Medak and his journey back to the island 42 years later, the film is about how it all went wrong and what happened, and the story of how Peter Sellers helped turn it into a shipwreck. After troubles while filming, Medak later described the film as "the biggest disaster of my life." This film seems to be his attempt to wash himself clean and examine in closer detail exactly what went wrong. Another fascinating documentary for cinephiles to ...
