Recently my Ubuntu 12.10 system has started the following strange behavior: A Google Chrome window will pop up, trying to load this URL:
This will result in a page that says:
Success SECURITY WARNING: Please treat the URL above as you would your password and do not share it with anyone.
(Despite that warning, I don't seen anything confidential in the URL.)
What I find very strange about this is that it will pop up a few minutes after I boot my system, before I even start Chrome.
Is this some kind of malware, or what?
EDIT: After deleting the "Ubuntu App" from Facebook(!), the popups still occur, but now they bring up a message saying "Ubuntu would like to access your public profile, friend list, News Feed, photos and your friends' photos."
