What is SavingsBull?

Savings Bull is an adware extension that plugs into the user's web browser for IE, Chrome and Firefox and will display additional advertisements in search engines such as Bing and Google. It installs itself as a browser extension/toolbar and runs as a background process. Once installed, it displays ads by injecting new ads in search as well as various web pages that use 3rd party advertising and replaces these ads with its own. It also constantly will display pop-up ads when the user is doing various activities such as watching a video or viewing a specific shopping web site.

From the EULA:
"The Toolbar interacts with your computer by: Displaying advertisements, including without limitation by inserting into web pages or displaying over parts of such web pages advertisements, banners or coupons that would not otherwise appear; Converting words on pages you view into hyperlinks that are linked to advertisements; Communicating with our servers to check for new offers, the placement of offers, the date and time you install and uninstall the Toolbar, and whether an updated version of the Toolbar is available; Monitoring and recording the domain name of each page you view, the advertisements that appear on these pages, and the advertisements that you click."
