How to prevent from getting clickbombed at Google AdSence banners

The horror szenario for every webmaster number one is the exclusion from the google AdSense programme. Most websites are monitized iby using Google AdSence banners on the website. I heard that something can be done to prevent from beeing a victim by a hacker attac where massive invalide clicks are generated on such banners by bots. I run a website which was realized by Drupal 7. Does anybody know how to protect the website from such hacker attac?

You can report any abnormal activity to Google Adsense using their official “Invalid Clicks Contact Form”. It’s a great way to let Google know and defend your account. Google may contact you if it seems necessary.

You can use Javascript code to limit excess clicks from by IP. It will show a different ad when someone tries to click several times.

Temporarily remove your Adsense.

I have not seen or heard of any module dedicated to this purpose. But there is a module Google AdSense integration which lets you disable ads for specific unusual roles.
