    ***Just sharing***​

    Google,New York University and The International Computer Science Institute published a report investigating Pay-Per-Install companies.
    You can find this report here: https://regmedia.co.uk/2016/08/05/google-ad-injection.pdf

    They tracked all Blackhatworld discussions and some other PPI forum in order to make this report.

    Watch out guys sharing your methods live here on BHW isn't always a good idea.
    You can create groups and share methods though.

    Now that they know all tricks PPI networks tricks use to stay under the radar, they have set up theirs to block these PPI sites.

    Whenever PPI companies come up with a way to trick them, they also find their way to block them from downloading using Chrome.

    At the end PPI companies give up since it's worthless to play a game with Google's high tech computer software engineers.

    First Outbrowse commonly called (Revenyou) vanished then Amonetize and others gave up. The rest of the companies now are playing hard to remain in the game.

    It's surprising to see such studies on PPI. This must be serious!

    Yea but their service is terrible. All the big AV companies stalk their apps and as soon as they see a new one, they immediately flag it as malware or PUP. In the long run you're paying to screw yourself.
