SDK Spoofing is a sophisticated type of mobile ad fraud where fraudsters hack attribution tools (MMPs) to create legitimate-looking installs, fake clicks, or fake in-app events from real devices.
Fraudsters perform SDK spoofing by creating mobile apps that have an SDK built into a Trojan APK. When users download those apps, fraudsters start sending fake attribution signals to MMPs. SDK spoofing can also be performed via zombie devices to fool attribution tools.
