Ubuntu – Security warning from Facebook in Chromium


I am terrified.

Every ten minutes Chromium pops up with a tab stating:

SECURITY WARNING: Please treat the URL above as you would your password and do not share it with anyone.

Very confused as to how it got here, so I've been running ClamAV. Ran it fully on my home folder, and it found some MS viruses that I removed, and still nothing.

I'm wondering if it's some sort of Ubuntu dash applet that is trying to connect to Facebook? I've changed my password on FB just to be sure, and nothing has changed.

Thanks for the help? 🙁

  • This is a bug in Facebook. Simply delete Facebook from your Online Accounts and you should not get this error message in your browser. A work around has already been released for Saucy and Quantal/Raring's ones are being prepared.
