Google releases clickbot study

I haven't written much about click fraud lately (and probably won't), but I thought I'd pass along a study Google made of a botnet-based click fraud attempt against syndicated search engines. Apparently they caught the clicks and marked them as "invalid", although it's not clear whether they were marked as such before another company (Panda Software) detected the botnet.

In general, I don't have much more to say about click fraud. Unless someone asks me a specific question about it, or something really hot pops up, there probably won't be any more click fraud comments from me here.
