How does Atomx detect malware, phishing attempts, and auto-redirects?
The Atomx Creative Checker constantly loads advertiser’s creative tags by using different IPs, browsers, devices, screen resolutions, operating systems. This way it tricks any malicious creative code into executing its “nasty things”. Once a creative is debunked as malicious or auto-redirect it gets excluded from the Atomx Ad Exchange. Buying networks can see these automated impressions and clicks in their external statistics, but not in their Atomx stats. We neither show nor charge buying networks for this protective bot traffic. Simply check your Atomx stats for the clicks and impressions you actually pay for. The amounts are lower than those shown in your external statistics. Atomx only charges its buying networks for the “good” clicks and impressions.
