Phishing Error Message? <SOLVED>

Postby nsivin on Tue Oct 15, 2013 3:31 pm

For the past week or so, every time I boot my computer under v. 15, I get an error message that says “System program problem detected. Do you want to report the problem now?” Since this pointedly does not indicate what the problem is, or give any way to find out, I assume this is a case of phishing. Of course, it could also be rather thoughtless programming, of a kind more characteristic of Microsoft than Linux. Does anyone know anything about it one way or the other?”
