New in Ubuntu 12.04 is whoopsie – which sends a crash log to ubuntu. Nice feature? Well no as they don’t tell you about it nor to they ask you, they just do it.
Nice privacy issue guys.
To tell if you have it check the file /etc/default/whoopsie
If you see that then it’s enabled. You’ll also see a process running called whoopsie as well.
To turn it off just change it from true to false & kill the whoopsie process (or reboot).
Note this affects any distribution based on Ubuntu 12.04 including Mint 13 so check you are not infected by whoopsie.
