USFunVideos: Pre-Roll & Video Single Pixel Advertising Fraud

Recently, The Wall Street Journal published an interesting article about single pixel advertising on the website USFunVideos.com. Besides the content, the website displayed several tiny websites, each the size of a single pixel on a computer screen.

Those tiny websites had barely any content but served up advertisements which were invisible to the naked eye.

The Whois details of USFunVideos.com reveal that the domain is registered to Malcom Dawn in Malaga, Spain but “Mr. Dawn” is unknown at the provided telephone number.

According to Mdot’s team oneemedia.com is associated with the site but the researchers were unable to find additional information.

Does the trail really end here?

Digging deeper, we actually can link USFunVideos.com and the single pixel advertising incident to Creafi Online Media, an advertising company with offices in Seville – Marbella – Madrid | Spain, London | UK, Martin | Slovakia, Sliema | Malta, Los Angeles | USA, Sao Paulo | Brazil and Johannesburg | South Africa.
