comment Chrome Popup Malware “openadserving.com”?
Sorry I meant this treats the symptoms but not the disease. Preventing the DNS lookup might hide the popups but whatever malware is causing those lookups to occur in the first place is still present.

comment Chrome Popup Malware “openadserving.com”?
This is a prevention, but not a cure. The question is why is it trying to connect to openadserving.com in the first place. The sites I was visiting were clean. Somehow the browser was "infected" with the popup advertising.

comment Chrome Popup Malware “openadserving.com”?
I tried reinstalling the google-chrome-stable package (purge). Didnt work. I then did it again but this time deleted .cache/chrome too. This has fixed it. I had not recently installed any plugins. Somehow a web site must have "infected" the browser through javascript.
