There is nothing new about finding your IP Address and display it on the web page. They can even determine your arp 
addresses in some complex authentication method.  It is good to remind such advertisement utilizes social engineering 
as Edward mentioned.

There is nothing attacker can do if you protect your network well, or installing a securely-configured personal 
firewall.  I would suggest to find a good pop-up stopper to 'kill' the annoying ads.
