Earlier this year, RiskIQ reported an eightfold increase in internet scam incidents, which deny the $83 billion digital advertising industry millions of dollars. Since then, we’ve identified a particularly prolific threat actor that’s built out wide swaths of infrastructure to deliver millions of scam ads, threatening consumers and undermining the digital advertising industry.

In this report, we show how “NoTrove,” a scam actor named after its URI pattern and penchant for denying victims “troves” of rewards, uses its scam empire and advanced automation techniques to stay ahead of detection and takedown efforts.
