Post Click fraud software

I am interested in the topic of click fraud that seems to be very popular at the moment and came across some software that apparently detects it, has anyone else used it?

http://www.clickrisk.com/

It doesn't show anything up on my sites but I am still convinced there might be some problems.

Talking Thanks

Thanks for the links, I have found about 6 sites now that specifically talk about this fraud and they all seem relatively new, maybe this is something to do with google going public, I read that they made a public statement that they are regularly refunding customers money due to fraud.

I've been saying this for years now, truth is good click fraud can't be detected. I was doing it with directhit long ago. I think the main reason why it isn't ramped is that the cost of large scale click fraud is too high -- in the end everybody would lose.

good click fraud can't be detected, but a lot of people aren't good.

They are spiteful, stupid or both.

Personally, I don't think if I click on the same ad from the same computer every day for a year the advertiser should get charged every time. Unfortunately most of the time they do.

Better click fraud detection

Actually, if you're really interested in detecting click fraud, try http://www.clickprotector.com - they seem to be much more accurate and prices are pretty affordable.
