What is SavingsBullFilter?

Savings Bull is a potentially unwanted web browser extension that is ad-supported /affiliate coupon supported and will display various popup and banner ads as well as modify the user's web browser search and home page settings. This plugin will update Internet Explorer (as a BHO), Chrome (as an extension) and Firefox (as an add-in). In some cases, the program will monitor a user's behavior (which the user agreed to if they did not read the full EULA) and will inject rival advertisements over existing one or just inject new ones all together. This toolbar is typically bundled by third party download managers/installers or through questionable online ads. It also runs as a background Windows Service.

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."
