Malicious pop up ad

As I was using the site, I had a page pop up and direct me to a page that tried to force me to "update adobe flash", the site listed in the browser was "popalwaysbestappclicks.top".  I'm assuming this came from one of the ads on the site, as all I was doing was loading one of the pages.  I registered a forum account to try to report this, but it seems I must post as guest until my account is approved.  I've attached a screenshot; as I tried to leave the page I got the pop up asking if I wanted to stay/leave, everything else is from the page I was redirected to.

Thank you for reporting this. I'm sorry you've experienced this.

You might have some luck reporting the ad in question. Google ads have a small report/close button on them to report them as malicious. As long as you still have the offending page (not the pop-up) open, you should be able to report that ad. It might be tricky to track down which one exactly caused it.
