That also popped up for me tonight but that was only once a few hours ago.

Nothing since thank god! Haven't the faintest idea what it is, I thought I had pressed something by mistake when it happened.

I feel a little better now. Not a clue what it is, but I've just had it a couple of times.

Time for another scan methinks.

I haven't as I don't have a user name or password for rubicon.

It is the internet gods telling you to get a pop up blocker.

Their latest news state

the Rubicon Project Acquires Seattle-Based Malware Security Company SiteScout
Should an advertising site be aquiring Malware Security firms?
