Bug Description

The closest related package might be Whoopsie, though this seems to be a problem with the Ubuntu website. Hopefully it's not just involving my Ubuntu One ID and you'll be able to duplicate.

Steps to reproduce on a 16.04 system:

1) Open System Settings/Security and Privacy and click on the Diagnostics tab.

2) Click on "Show Previous Reports"

You're taken to an "Ubuntu Error tracker" page, which is hosted on errors.ubuntu.com

3) Click on one of the reports (assuming you have any)

You'll be taken to a sign in page on login.ubuntu.com asking for your Ubuntu One ID.

In my case, after signing in I immediately get a page with this html source code:

<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/css/error.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu+Mono:700&subset=Latin">
</head>
<style>
</style>
<body>
    <div id="outer"><div id="inner">
    <blockquote><a href="http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail118.html">
        FLAGRANT SYSTEM ERROR<br>
        <br>
        Computer over.<br>
        Virus = Very Yes.
    </a></blockquote>
    </div></div>
    <div id="ident"></div>
</body>
</html>

If you need more information please let me know.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. It seems that your bug report is not filed about a specific source package though, rather it is just filed against Ubuntu in general. It is important that bug reports be filed about source packages so that people interested in the package can find the bugs about it. You can find some hints about determining what package your bug might be about at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/FindRightPackage. You might also ask for help in the #ubuntu-bugs irc channel on Freenode.

It would be great if someone from the Ubuntu team with access to this server could determine if this issue is limited to only certain machines/error reports or if it's more widespread. Thanks!

This is the 500 error for the Error Tracker which a previous developer thought was funny.

The site is not compromised.

Thanks Brian. We get that error for every report we click on.
