HUMAN’s Satori Threat Intelligence and Research Team has been investigating a CTV-centric botnet—dubbed PARETO—since the first half of 2020. The botnet took advantage of the shift to digital accelerated by the pandemic by hiding in the noise in order to trick advertisers and technology platforms into believing that ads were being shown on CTVs.
