Default What is ad.yieldmanager.com?

What is the pop-up ad.yieldmanager.com? It seems to do nothing.
If it is a malware or spy bot, why do they advertise itself with a pop-up?

My pop-up blocker stops it most of the time but the other day I had to turn it off. I get this pop-up like crazy with it off.

I found these files in my Temp Internet files:
ako[1]
ako[2]
ako[3]
ako[4]
ako[5]
If I open ako[5] with text Pad, this is in it:

function rsi_img(p,u,c){if(u.indexOf(location.protocol)==0){var i=new Image(2,3);if(c){i.onload=c;}
i.src=u;p[p.length]=i;}}
function rsi_simg(p,s,i){if(i<s.length){rsi_img(p,s[i],function(){rsi_simg(p,s,i+1);});}}
function rsi_req_pix(l,s){var w=window;if(typeof(w.rsi_imgs)=="undefined"){w.rsi_imgs=[];}
if(typeof(w.rsi_simgs)=="undefined"){w.rsi_simgs=[];}
var a=w.rsi_imgs;var b=w.rsi_simgs;var i;for(i=0;i<l.length;++i){if(s){b[b.length]=l[i];}else{rsi_img(a,l[i]);}}
if(s){rsi_simg(a,b,0);}}
rsi_req_pix([],0);rsi_req_pix(['http://ad.yieldmanager.com/pixel?id=107880&t=2','http://ads.revsci.net/adserver/ako?record_activation&rsi_dpr=107880'],1);

Default Re: What is ad.yieldmanager.com?

It is just an advertisement site and you will see cookies from it too. It is not malware. Many advertisements use popups. Popup type windows are not necessarily bad just because a popup blocker blocks them.
