I just got this on my computer.
i was going to a new page on ats and this poped up.
looks like the ad network has some malware on it.

I had that as well, tried to load "My ATS" earlier and had Google something or another block the site that attempted to load instead, saying that it was a known malware site.

I haven't seen that specific one yet, but it reminds me of the popups I used to get like that which were enticements to buy anti-malware software I didn't want or need. The advice I got was not to click OK or even the red X on the popup, but to select ctrl-alt-del to open task manager, and terminate the process of the popup in task manager, that avoids a script running when you click on the popup, if it is malware.

It might help them to troubleshoot if you tell them the forum area or threads involved at the time since the ads are often targeted and context sensitive. There was a form to report malware, but the links I've found to that reporting form are dead, so I don't know if they still have it or not.
