Default Toucharcade pointing me to Dr. Oz ads?

Hi, when ever I enter this site, I get a pop up about Dr. Oz weight loss ad. Anyone else have this issue and have an idea what could be causing this? Interestingly, it only when I enter this site the first time in a day. I'm using Safari on Yosemite.

Just some one of those "Dr" that advertise weight loss stuff or what not. Really insignificant in the whole scheme of things but I'm concerned what is causing these ads to pop up on my computer when entering this site sometimes. Doesn't pop up on my phone.

Sounds like your pc is infected with something. I've never had that issue on my PC looking at the site

It's on my Mac but it hasn't been popping up after I cleared safari data. Apparently people searching on Google have also gotten the ad so the origin isn't too well known.

Looks like we've been hit by this- http://blog.sucuri.net/2015/01/adsen...-campaign.html

We've disabled Google ads until we figure out how to block this kind of thing better. Sorry about that.

Oh interesting, I was worried it had to do with my computer. At least the culprit was found.
