What is CoolSaleCoupon?
CoolSaleCoupon is a browser extension classified as adware by virtual security professionals. The particular application is marketed as a helpful tool for the online shopper. Vendors of this dubious application state that they will present you with various deals and coupons that will allow you to save money while purchasing anything online. In fact, CoolSaleCoupon is not useful in any way. It is invasive and annoying, and you should remove it right away, because it could lead you to malicious websites that could infect your system with some serious malware.
What does CoolSaleCoupon do?
Once it is on your operating system CoolSaleCoupon installs extensions to every popular browser on the market (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer); thus removal of this nasty application is bothersome as you will have to remove extensions from all the browsers. Names of the extensions are often randomized; therefore, you could come across names like CoolSaleCooupoN, CoolSAleCCoupon, CooolSaaluCioUpponn, etc.
After CoolSaleCoupon installs the extensions it will display various adverts and pop-ups within the browser, making your web browsing experience a frustrating process, to put it mildly. These commercial adverts and coupons are displayed whether you like it or not.
But that is not all, because adverts and pop-ups displayed by CoolSaleCoupon could turn out to be corrupted. That is so because publishers of this application do not review the third-party links that are presented while running their suspicious application. An advert could redirect you to a hoax website that is usually setup by cybercriminals mimicking a website that you might be familiar with; thus, cyber crooks are able to lure you into giving up your sensitive data.
A corrupted website could also be implanted with an arbitrary code execution, meaning that just by landing on a website you could get your system infected with Trojans, keyloggers, rootkits, etc. These websitescan be identified by a professional antimalware tool, which you should be running at all times. Once the antimalware tool detects that the website that might be malicious it displays a warning. Thus by running a legitimate malware detection and removal tool you could avoid these virtual threats.
Where does CoolSaleCoupon come from?
Our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com noted that the direct download link from the official CoolSaleCoupon website does not work. Thus, it is safe to assume that this particular adware application is being spread via bundled freeware. It was noticed that CoolSaleCoupon, in quite a few cases, came with DomaIQ installers, which promote fake Flash players, Java application, etc. If you want to avoid dubious applications that, in most cases, come bundled you should start downloading your software from official vendors’ websites. It is your best bet, because official publishers do not tend to bundle their software.
