I have a dual boot windows 7 & Ubuntu. Ubuntu was reccommended to me as I have been under a pretty severe cyber attack in windows. However, the video linked below will display what I experienced this afternoon in Ubuntu 12.04. What you will see is what happened when I placed my mouse on the left side icons for Firefox and Word Doc. This looks like a virus to me. I even unplugged my wireless mouse to see if it might be the cause of the problem but the event continued on anyway. What do you think and what's the best way to get rid of it? Thanks!
