Facebook起诉亚洲开发商进行点击欺诈

  Facebook开始对两家亚洲开发商采取法律行动,涉嫌通过Android应用程序在用户的智能手机上安装恶意软件,以对广告产生假冒印象。

  据彭博社报道,该社交媒体巨头对总部位于新加坡的JediMobi Tech和LionMobi(香港)提起诉讼,他们被指控参与一项名为“点击欺诈”的行为。

  据称这些公司在他们制作的Google Play应用中安装了恶意软件,这些应用程序感染了智能手机并产生了虚假点击

  总体而言,Facebook在2018年底的三个月内宣称有4000万次广告展示和170万次点击,人为地夸大了两家公司随后收集的广告收入。

  Facebook表示,它在2018年12月发现违规行为,禁用了应用程序并禁止开发者。它还报销了为虚假点击付费的广告客户。

  “有时,恶意软件是以应用程序更新的形式提供的,在2018年10月之后,恶意软件直接包含在应用程序中,”Facebook在投诉中说。

  目前尚不清楚该公司正在寻求什么样的损害赔偿。

  Facebook的诉讼正值该公司面临来自政府对用户数据保护的压力越来越大以及其从平台上删除有害内容的责任。

  布隆伯格表示,该公司还起诉中国和新西兰的公司,指责他们在Instagram帐户上夸大喜欢和关注者。

  Facebook started legal action against two Asia-based developers for allegedly installing malware on users’ smartphones through Android apps to generate fake impressions on adverts.

  Bloomberg reported the social media giant filed a complaint against Singapore-based JediMobi Tech and LionMobi (Hong Kong), which are accused of engaging in a practice known as “click injection fraud”.

  The companies allegedly installed malware on Google Play apps they made, which infected smartphones and generated fake clicks.

  In total, Facebook alleged 40 million ad impressions and 1.7 million clicks were made over three months at the end of 2018, to artificially inflate ad revenue which the two companies then collected.

  Facebook said it found the violation in December 2018, disabled the apps and banned the developers. It has also reimbursed advertisers who paid for the fake clicks.

  “At times, the malware was delivered in the form of updates to the apps and, after October 2018, the malware was included directly in the apps,” Facebook said in the complaint.

  It is currently unknown what damages the company is seeking.

  Facebook’s lawsuit comes as the company faces up to increasing pressure from governments over the protection of user data and its duty to remove harmful content from its platforms.

  Bloomberg said the company is also suing companies in China and New Zealand, accusing them of inflating likes and followers on Instagram
