Savings Bull is an adware application aiming to improve user’s browsing experience by displaying various offers, coupons and special deals when the user visits online shopping sites. The features of Savings Bull may seem very appealing, yet the plug-in is categorized as a potentially unwanted program. Although Savings Bull does not possess malicious features, it can efficiently work as a tool for malware distribution.
What Does Savings Bull Do?
Savings Bull can be downloaded from its official page or might end up on the user’s computer via bundled downloads. Once installed, Savings Bull generates numerous pop-ups, banners, text link and full-screen ads, that may interfere with the user’s online activities. Instead of installing an extension on your browser, Savings Bull runs one process in the background – SavingsBullFilterService64.exe, which while active, will deliver advertisements every time you browse an online-shopping site like Expedia, Walmart, BestBuy, etc. These ads will match your preferences, but you can never be sure that there aren’t any malicious webpages among the presented links.
