Connected TV botnet attack identified

Digital media measurement software and analytics specialist DoubleVerify (DV) has identified a new bot network specifically targeting Connected TV (CTV) devices. DV uncovered the botnet after the company saw a 40 per cent spike in traffic from CTV devices, marking the first direct, scaled botnet attack that DV has flagged in the CTV environment. The fraud scheme was identified by the DV Fraud Lab which, through a combination of machine algorithms and manual processes, continuously analyses trends in fraud across devices.
