Are these new inline ads coming from you or do I need to start auditing my plugins?

Better check your computer. Probably some adware has hit your browser.

This “Ad by Advertise” redirect is usually caused by adware installed on your computer. These adware programs are bundled with other free software that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed adware without your knowledge.

Thanks

-Found it.. It was this one
