Overview: Detecting Automatic Transactions

You can use Fraud Protection Service (FPS) to check for automated (bot) transactions on web pages. FPS uses behavior analysis and pattern matching technologies to find bot transactions generated by web robots. The system looks at interactions such as mouse movements, mouse clicks, and page read time to determine whether the client is human or a web robot. The system can also check for automated manipulation of data in URL parameters and in AJAX requests, and can check for removal of the Transaction Data cookie.
Automatic transactions detection is particularly useful on web pages where money transfers are performed, which are popular targets of malware web robots. On a page like this, automatic transactions detection can check for data manipulation in the destination account number and/or the amount of money to be transferred, and send an alert to the FPS Dashboard if manipulation is detected.
