The item with the bronze star.

enter image description here

It showed up when the Frost and Fire update went live. I've logged in and out, map changed etc but nothing seems to update it.

Is this a quest yet to be announced or is this a bug?

The bronze star is a UI element that was accidentally introduced in the last update before it was meant to be displayed. It was supposed to be removed in a subsequent patch, but to date Arenanet still hasn't been able to do so.

Here's a Reddit post detailing the fixes in the latest patch. Note the following line:

Hid blank world-event UI for Temple of the Silent Storm Week

This was later removed from the official forum patch notes when it was discovered that the star was still there for players.

Update: Another patch was released on January 30th which has now solved the issue. Here are the official patch notes which mention the fix.
