This morning I saw this weird popup / flag when I hovered over the Spam link on webpage.
The text read:
URL:jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:TRIDENTD1 Database Connection: sandbox
What is that?
I had no idea, but it was persistent. Every time I hovered the mouse over the link, that popup appeared. It would not appear in screenshots, so I resorted to the camera in my phone.
After hiding the browser window, the popup also appeared on my Calendar:
When I closed the Calendar, it appeared when I moved my mouse over the same area of the desktop:
Was this some kind of rogue application hidden on the desktop?
It was a legitimate application on a different desktop.
It was from DBVisualizer, which was on Desktop 2, while the popup was appearing on Desktop 1.
Problem solved, but my anxiety over that issue was real….
For what it’s worth, the laptop was rebooted this morning for an upgrade. The problem did not persist after the reboot.
