Where does LifeSaver come from?

This adware comes from the large and notorious Multiplug family of useless adware applications that include CoupontasticOffers and Awesome-Promos, which we have covered lately. These programs are all based on the JustPlugIt cross-browser platform. Therefore, LifeSaver can also affect all major browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome as well. This adware, just like all other family members, is distributed in third-party installers, such as InstallRex and Amonetize. These may, unfortunately, contain other malware programs, too. According to our researchers, LifeSaver can come with infections like LightningDownloader and So if this adware is on-board, there is a good chance that your browsers have already been hijacked and you are exposed to even more potentially harmful third-party content. So, if you want to restore the previous security level, you will have to delete LifeSaver and take care of the other possibly related infections as well.

What does LifeSaver do?
