Supplementary notes

The source provides the following definitions:
- software development kit (SDK) spoofing: the creation of legitimate-looking installs with data of real devices without the presence of any actual installs,
- click spamming: a type of advertising fraud that happens when a fraudster executes clicks for users who haven’t made them,
- click injection: a sophisticated form of click-spamming., by publishing (or having access to) an Android app which listens to "install broadcasts," fraudsters detect when other apps are downloaded and trigger clicks before an install completes. The fraudster then receives credit for installs as a consequence.
